linux is different from windows in mounting and unmounting... you should see your mounts in /etc/fstab
--cat /etc/fstab
there are a lot of permissions to get around here, try reading some man pages if you want more info, or ask specific questions such as 'how do i allow all users to mount a device?' (answer: add the 'users' option)
basically, you need to mount devices to access them, and unmount devices to remove them, with removeable media -- CDs -- you can make this an automatic process...
