Hi !!
these are the contents of my /etc/fstab

/dev/VolGroup00/LogVol00 / ext3 defaults 1 1
LABEL=/boot /boot ext3 defaults 1 2
devpts /dev/pts devpts gid=5,mode=620 0 0
tmpfs /dev/shm tmpfs defaults 0 0
proc /proc proc defaults 0 0
sysfs /sys sysfs defaults 0 0
/dev/VolGroup00/LogVol01 swap swap defaults 0 0
/dev/hda /mnt/cdrom iso9660,udf noauto,users,defaults 0 0

but still cant get mount a cdrom as mount /mnt/cdrom

when I try it, I get ............

Satyam:/home/koppole:>mount /mnt/cdrom/
mount: block device /dev/hda is write-protected, mounting read-only
mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/hda,
missing codepage or other error
In some cases useful info is found in syslog - try
dmesg | tail or so

Satyam:/home/koppole:>dmesg | tail

Is UDF the windows only fs?
If you created the dvd on windows, chech that you are closing it with the "make CD (DVD) readable by all OS's.

Also, I thoht CD (DVD) was automounted under /media ?

Well, I tossed in an audio music CD and I got the last line in the mount.
I didn't do anything but put the CD in the drive and it is playing. :)

Well, I'll be a monkey's uncle. It is playing in totem with GTStreamer 0.10.4.
Not used to things working all by themselves. lol
