Re: Did you know ...
Isn't that an option somewhere in the gnome/kde config. You need to
create a file or a link into the .gnome/desktop or something like that. I
can't remember, but within there that is where you need to take a
look. As for the eject, I think that you can make it suid root without
many problems. I don't really see that many holes being in source code to
control the eject of a cdrom/zip/etc. But, I haven';tlooked at it so I
really don't know. :)

a tiny little brain and wouldn't be expected to worry about anything."
