Defining CDROM and DVD in fstab


Hi - am sure this question has been asked before, but have never been able to get it straight. Have just upgraded to Fedora 10, and wish to make the right fstab entries for both CDROM and DVD which are separate devices (and create mount points). I'm not sure of what the Linux device names are. I have stumbled across /DEV/SR0 and /DEV/SR1 but these seem not to be right.
Any help appreciated please
George

In my fedora 11 /dev/sr0 and /dev/sr1 are my dvd drives. The sr0 is on a ide and sr1 is on a sata connection. I would imagine that your primary dvd/cdrom is /dev/sr0 like mine.

/dev/sr0 /media/ udf,iso9660 noauto,user,ro 0 0
/dev/sr1 /mnt/ udf,iso9660 noauto,user,ro 0 0

This will mount your primary dvd/cdrom to media and your secondary device to mnt directory. Hope this helps
