Question cdrom mount mandrake8.0


People, how do I configure my fstab file so I can mount my CDROM as an average user, not just a root?
Here is what I have right now for my CDROM in fstab:
/mnt/cdrom /mnt/cdrom supermount fs=iso9660,dev=/dev/cdrom 1 0 0?
I tryed couple of things that I read, but they don't seem to be working, any help?

Maybe this will help...

Hi I just checked my fstab file and found it read
/mnt/cdrom /mnt/cdrom supermount fs=iso9660,dev=/dev/cdrom 0 0
Notice the missing 1 entry at the end of the line? Perhaps this is the problem as looking at the man for fstab is the fith field of the command (fs_freq) and is used by the dump command to say which file systems need to be dumped - try taking out this 1 from the file and see if it cures your problem.It can't hurt your system so don't worry if you do it,ok.
