Just a sidenote.
I am using SuSE 10.1 too, and things tend to work in general. But sometimes 
you need a more specific (advanced) solution, and tweaking udev and/or hal is 
really nice then. For example I hate that mount-by-volume-name policy 
(absolutely irritating, when trying to locate your CD without the use of the 
GUI), which is easily managed with hal rules and /etc/fstab. Or if you need, 
say, mount your usb drive with some special options, and mount ALL other usb 
drives differently, an udev rule, renaming the device node is just perfect.

And, yes, have in mind that this is a list, and a reply is not always in reply 
to you alone, rather than to all reading the thread...

Blade hails you...

All I ever craved were the two dreams I shared with you.
One I now have, will the other one ever dream remain.
For yours I truly wish to be.
