In SUSE Linux Professional 9.3 CD/DVD devices are mounted as /media/VOLUME_NAME. This can cause problems for some apps such as Wine which require that the mountpoint used remains constant.
Copy the text shown below, and save it as /usr/share/hal/fdi/95userpolicy/cddvd.fdi and ensure that the mountpoints specified (/media/dvd for cd/dvdrom and /media/dvdrecorder for cd/dvd writers) match that shown in /etc/fstab. You'll then need either to reboot, or restart hal for this to take effect.
