10.5: Prevent users from ejecting CDs with dscl
Authored by: mzso on Jan 16, '08 09:44:39AM
Recently I acquired a 10.5 machine for my two kids, and it became necessary to lock their access to the CD-ROM
I wonder how long is this going to hold? ;-) Kids always find a way to break through restrictions put in place by their parents. :-) They just have to Google a little bit and soon find out how to boot in single user mode from a boot CD. They could boot from a Mac OS X install disc and remove the restriction ... or boot from a Live CD (eg. Knoppix) and have a full featured desktop at their hands. I remember my younger years, when I had to work around similiar restrictions (and not just on the PC) ... it was always a nice challange ... for a day or two. ;-)
