I have the same problem with sound. The following was copied from SuSE website, but I can't figure out how to do this;
Your computer is equipped with a CDRW drive and one or several "ordinary" CD drives. After installing SuSE Linux 8.1, the CD drives cannot be mounted.


Some modules are missing from the initrd.

From SuSE Linux 8.1 on, the CD drive support is no longer compiled and kept in the kernel, but implemented by way of modules (cdrom and ide-cd). As opposed to the module ide-scsi, those modules (cdrom and ide-cd) are not included in the Initrd. That is why the SCSI emulation reaches all drives and not only those listed in the kernel parameter hdX=ide-scsi.


Insert the modules cdrom and ide-cd in the variable INITRD_MODULES in the file

To do this, open the YaST Sysconfig Editor. Select Base-Administration -> Common-Basics ->initrd_modules and insert both modules before the module ide-scsi. Be careful not to remove any of the modules listed, since they are necessary for booting.

Now, execute as root user the command mk_initrd

To do this, start a terminal program like konsole or xterm and log in as root user with the command su -. Then enter the command mk_initrd. If your boot manager is LILO, reinstall it with the commandlilo -v. This does not apply for GRUB. From SuSE Linux 8.1 on, GRUB is the standard boot loader.

Many Thanks in advance for anyone's help; Happy Holidays
