Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I tried that and it an d it changed the permissions from 660 to 666, but I still can't copy a cd. When I press Start to start the copy, the copying cd dialog pops up telling me that the source disk is being checked. The cd drive rumbles away, but the minutes pass and nothing happens...
I just noticed that you only have one cd drive in fstab. You may have to copy the cd to a temp folder, then burn it. If the burner is the only drive, I'm thinking there is a setting to check before you begin that will copy the cd, then have you change before the burn begins. But definitely copying to a folder first, then burning the file will work.
Curiouser and curiouser. Or praps I didn't wait long enough...
Well, I checked the permissions for /tmp/kde-ros and I do indeed have write access. So just to see what happened, I put a data cd in and tried to copy that. No problem whatsoever. It copied all the data into the tmp directory, ejected the drive and prompted me to put a new one in, which it duly wrote. So I tried my audio cd again, went and made myself a cup of tea and when I came back, I saw the following list of error messages in the dialog box:
Checking source disk.
Copying audio CD.
No CD-TEXT found.
No Cddb entry found.
Could not open device /dev/sr0
Error while reading session 1.
Removing temporary files.
Removing images files.
Hmmm... a bit strange this...
/dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom iso9660 noauto,user,unhide,ro 0 0
but audio CD wants to use /dev/sr0? Which is a device in itself, not a link to /dev/hdc.
A wild guess now: try adding /dev/sr0 to /etc/fstab the same way as /dev/hdc.
I tried executing cdparanoia from the command line to see if that worked and it didn't. I got this message:
dev/cdrom exists but isn't accessible. By default,
cdparanoia stops searching for an accessible drive here.
Consider using -sv to force a more complete autosense
of the machine.
More information about /dev/cdrom:
