LiveUSB - Need admin permissions


Hi,

I've made a LiveUSB of Fedora 18 LXDE and everything is fine except that I can't mount my CD - it (Disk Management says, "There are no filesystems which you are allowed to mount or unmount. Contact your administrator")

I even tried to logout and login as 'root' with a blank password, but it just ignored my request and I had only the 'liveuser' option available to log into.

Any suggestions, pls?

Try using "sudo"?
