I am running Suse 10.2 on a HP500 laptop. Recently I modified the kernel to enable touchpad functionality. Now the CD-ROM permissions (/dev/hdb) are set for "root" and "disk" but not for me or the group I belong to ("users"). I can restore the correct group or user permissions using chown or chgrp, but the changes are lost when I reboot and permission is denied again.
How can I set the permission to be permanent? Or do I have to run a script each time I boot to do it for me?
