Yast Installation Source

In SuSE 8.1 Pro, I am trying to change the source of installation. When I try to change the Software Source Media, I see one entry which has the following settings:

Status: On
Name: SuSE-Linux-Professional-INT-i386 Version 8.1
URL: cd:///;devices=/dev/sr0,/dev/sr1

First off, I try to "eject sr1" and nothing happens (whereas "eject sr0" ejects my CD-RW drive).

Secondly, when I do "eject hdc" my CD-ROM drive ejects.

I can't seem to change the URL to include /dev/hdc

I also can't seem to add a new entry. Not sure. So, when I try to install new software, it just keeps asking me to insert the disk. I really want to be able to install off tof the CD-ROM drive, not just the CD-RW drive. (Although, ideally allowing it to install off of both drives would be even better).

IIf it isn't clear, I have a CD-ROM and a CD-RW drive. I am using kernel 2.4.21
