Where is "Removable Drives and Media"

I have FC-5 and use KDE. (This refers to Totem-Xine but it could refer to other players as well.)

I've been following the "FC-5 Installation Notes" of Stanton Finley but there must be some differences in our set ups. For example earlier he said you could find the Selinux controls on the "System" menu but they are not there on my "System" menu. I found them on a menu named "Administration". But I can't find "Removable Drives and Media" anywhere. It's not under System>Preferences like it says in his notes. I thought he was using KDE but maybe not.

Can someone please tell me how I can set the Multimedia tab in the dialogue "Removable Drives and Media"? He said to check the box next to "Play video DVD disks when inserted" and to enter in the command box "totemdvd://".

Thank you,

Roy O'Neill

The problem is that by default Fedora Core uses Gnome not KDE, so all instructions will be oriented towards the Gnome desktop.

The Removable Drives and Media will be a preferences setting, so look in your Preferences menu.
