Suse 9.1 Yast2 breaks DVD mount

I got in on the "ship suse 9.1 to your house for free deal," therefore I got 3 dvds in the mail with various software...this has all been posted already on this site. Anyways, I install and like an idiot don't check exactly what packages are installed on the "default" setting. So, after installing I need to install more packages I find this program called Yast2 which I've never used (Redhat is my only linux experience).

After opening up Yast2 I go to the add/remove section and pick the packages I want. Then when I click next it says it can't find the DVD, more specifically "Insert SUSE PROFESSIONAL 9.1 SIDE A."

I try to mess around with things and nothing happens, what appears to be happening is Yast causes something to happen to the automount feature. If I open up the folders of the DVD manually, then open up Yast I can't access the DVD. In fact, I have to eject/reinsert the DVD to get it to work...

I can manually install one package at a time having to remount everytime I have Yast install a package.

Thanks for any help!

I'm still having trouble I haven't found any help on Novell's site to fix this problem..or if it's just my problem. I am using a TDK DVD-Recorder if that helps at all...the drive works normally just not with Yast
