fedora hasn't put entries for CD drives into fstab for quite a long time
and I suspect that this entry above was either carried through many
updates or as a solution found by some search.

Are you trying this inside of a GUI - if so, it should just automount
for the 'user' when the user inserts the CD. If it does not automount
when inserted, typing 'dmesg' (as root) should give you some clues at
the end of the output.

If you are doing this without a GUI and perhaps in say runlevel 3, then
try from command line...

mkdir /media/cd
mount /dev/sr0 /media/cd

and see what happens

Craig,

Thanks for your asssitance.

I do not see anything in dmesg that stands out to me, here are the line
items referencing the cdrom

ata2.00: ATAPI: TEAC CD-ROM CD-224E, 3.7C, max UDMA/33
ata2.00: configured for UDMA/33
scsi 1:0:0:0: CD-ROM            TEAC     CD-224E          3.7C PQ: 0 ANSI: 5
sr0: scsi3-mmc drive: 24x/24x cd/rw xa/form2 cdda tray
Uniform CD-ROM driver Revision: 3.20
sr 1:0:0:0: Attached scsi CD-ROM sr0
sr 1:0:0:0: Attached scsi generic sg1 type 5

My observation of fstab is the same as yours.  I am setting this machine
up for a user that would not be able to use mount so the standard gui is
what I am shooting for.

mount /dev/sr0 /media/cd

works fine for root but not the users account, and of course this is not gui.

Any ideas,

Greg
