Apple IBook and Yellow Dog - Screen savers and dvd won't work.

Hello folks..

I have a IBook that I have slapped yellow dog on, and I am very pleased with the result.
The only problem I seem to be having are 2 things..

I can't get the DVD drive to work... there is no mountpoint, nor can i find anything relating to the dvd in /dev and I have no Idea how to make one magically appear. .

The other one is the screen savers will not run no matter what. Not under root, not under any other user. The girlfriend isn't liking this non too much, and keeps nagging me to go back to OSX, which I don't like at all.

I can't figure out what is causing these issues, so if anyone out there has had similar problems or knows how to sove this one, that would be great.

According to yellow dog's site, everything is supported in my ibook except the modem (shocker)
