Hi Sparks

I updated the kernel after install with YAST online
update. Just a thought. I have just converted my
father-in-law's pc to Linux (no dual booting!! ), I
have also installed an internal cd writer and I have
just this second used it and k3b worked fine. I wonder
its because mine is an external usb cd writer? I had
no problems with SuSE 9.0 pro. If necessary I might
get me an internal one-I have been thinking of
changing anyway.
