changing default mount location


i have two disk drives, /dev/cdrom (my DVD drive) and /dev/cdrom1 (my CD-R drive). they were mounting to /mnt/cdrom and /mnt/cdrom1 respectivly just fine (this is on a new install of Fedora)

I also have two fat32 HD's which i have installed... went into /etc/fstab and added the neccessary lines for them, worked fine, autorun and automount worked for the two CD drives.


Now, I wanted to change the locatsion that the CD's were mounted to, to /mnt/dvd and /mnt/cdr

I went into /etc/fstab and modifed the two lines from

Code:
/dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom udf,iso9660 noauto,owner,kudzu,ro 0 0
/dev/cdrom1 /mnt/cdrom1 udf,iso9660 noauto,owner,kudzu,ro 0 0
to

Code:
/dev/cdrom /mnt/dvd udf,iso9660 noauto,owner,kudzu,ro 0 0
/dev/cdrom1 /mnt/cdr udf,iso9660 noauto,owner,kudzu,ro 0 0
As su, i created the two directories (and yes they are correct) and then ran mount -a

Nothing happened. removing the disks and replacing them does nothing, but doing mount /dev/cdrom or mount /dev/cdrom1 does mount them, however, sometimes it won't let me umount or eject them.

Did I do something wrong? or am I missing a step? thanks again

Look at the permissions and uid/gid of /mnt/cdrom and make sure that /mnt/dvd and /mnt/cdr are the same.

Mine are like this, so what you have should work fine. The noauto will keep them from being auto mounted with a mount -a command. I dont know why they would be mounted before you changed mount location?
Code:
drwxr-xr-x    2 root     root           48 Nov 18 23:05 cdrom/
drwxr-xr-x    2 root     root           48 Nov 18 23:05 cdrom2/
