CD drives dont work


I've played around with Read Hat7.3 and recently installed RH9
The install went ok but when rebooted, after the message 'looking for new hardware' it comes up with an error about a segmentation fault in usr/bin/kudzu.
The only problem I have is neither my cd rom or dvd drive spins up. I learnt in RH7.3 that right clicking on desktop enables you to mount cd/floppy's without using the command line, this does not work in RH9
If I insert anaudio cd and launch a player it comes up with a drive error

Open an xterm and type the command without the quotes.
