Mounting removable media

I'm trying to configure my fstab for mounting removable media. Can anyone give me an example of an fstab line which mounts automatically a cd drive when a cd is inserted? And what line should I write for my dvd drive?

Best regards to all,

use the option "supermount"
however you will need a patched kernel !

the vanilla kernels do not have supermount, they need to be patched.
the gentoo kernels have the option for supermount, but it is not compiled by default.

'modprobe supermount'
'lsmod | grep supermount'
will let you know if your kernel supports supermount.
