Who said they would? _I_ said I have problems working at the console,
with stuff getting mounted and then opened in the desktop (which might
not be mine).
I don't see that software would be different; yast (in SUSE) and apt-get
(Debian) both do CD mounts. I've not had a problem on SUSE with CDs
(yet), but on SUSE the mount-point for CDs is stable (tho there are way
too many symlinks interfering with tab-completion).
