- Help!!! Okay, I just downloaded and installed Mandrake 7.2, but, as one can usually expect from Mandrake, a problem arose. I have no access to any of my drives except my zip (/dev/hdb4). My floppy drive, my DVD, and my CD-Writer don't work. When I go to open them I get a message telling me something about not having read/write priveleges for the device. This does it in root as well. How do I overcome this? Help me!!!!!!!!!!! Thanks in advance, Joe.
