Office Update with CX office - SuSE probs


Tying to install & update Office 2000 with crossover office.
It won't read my cd. (error 2371)
got round the problem initially by copying the data to my hard drive, but cannot do that for the update as requires CD to be in drive & won't give other location.

Having read around this (from the crossover office documentation) it seems to be a problem with the way suse 9.1 mounts cd's automatically

The crossover office documentation says that for Mandrake you must disable supermount - however this is not what suse uses, or doesn't accept the supermount -i disable command.
There is nothing about how to fix SUSE.

I have tried disabling subfs (altering module name so it doesn't load), but that alone didn't work, I have also changed the etc/fstab file but that just made my dvd drives unusable. (probably did those two steps wrongly)

any ideas would be most appreciated.

Editing your fstab should do the trick.

I saw that post but obviously did something wrong.

should I only edit the fstab or should I disable subfs too?

Sorry about the late response, been outta touch.

When you mount your DVD, what does it show up as?

What the heck is dvdram?

Can you try commenting out *every* reference to your DVD in fstab so that you are forced to manually mount discs?
