I could use some help setting up Exact Audio Copy using wine 0.9.24 and SuSe 
10.2 with KDE 3.5xx

My problem is finding the audio cd, If I put in a data disk, hal will 
update  /media/.hal.mtab will have an entry and create a temporary mounting 
point such as /media/new  I probably could  use that in winecfg to set up a 
mounting point for wine. However if I insert an audio disk, the hal   system 
does not create any mounting points nor can I find a way to create one, it 
only lists /dev/hdc any place in kde and if I try to mount /dev/hdc it gives 
me an error.

I tried creating the following :

creating the file: 

 and running  

then as su: 

rchal restart  

but I still don't get anything I can find with winecfg

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="ISO-8859-1"?> <!-- -*- SGML -*- -->
<deviceinfo version="0.2">
        <!-- optical drives -->
        <match key="block.device" string="/dev/hdc">
          <match key="volume.is_disc" bool="true">
            <merge key="volume.policy.should_mount" type="bool">true</merge>

Is my above code wrong? I was not sure - (the editor in kmail may throw it off 
as well) 

I didn't have any better luck using /etc/fstab, perhaps a conflict with hal 
and udev, or I am doing something wrong. 

The problem isn't wine but my inability to get winecfg to find and use my 

thanks in advance
