<!-- FIXME : needs update, needs GUI  -->

<note><para>
Under Unix/Linux, you must have write access to the device
corresponding to your DVD drive. For that, you should be in the
<emphasis>disk</emphasis> or <emphasis>cdrom</emphasis> group (look
at the permissions in <filename>/dev</filename>). If you're not, add
yourself to the group:

</para>

<screen>
<prompt># </prompt><userinput>adduser your_login disk_or_cdrom</userinput>
</screen>

<para>
and then restart your session.
