FC3 fstab HAL confict...


Greetings!

I've just upgraded from ye good ol' RH9 to FC3, which is indeed most lovely!
My problem is that I have to work as root in order to being fully able to use
my DVD (/dev/hdd;/media/cdrom) and CD-burner (/dev/hdc;/media/cdrecorder).

Everything works fine, like playing DVD's, ejecting etc. as long as it's root who
gives the commands -- I tried to add 'user' to both these drives in 'fstab', but
it just won't keep my changes (probably because of HAL).

Bottom line; Is there any feasible way for me to make it so that 'user' (me)
gets full (i.e access needed) control over those two drives without
disabling the HAL-service? I've read somewhere that disabling HAL
is not recommended due to future dependencies or something along those
lines.

In the end, it's not really that dead-important for me to get them working
without having to su (no pun intended ;-), but it would be very nice though,
as my family members isn't that much into computers :-)


Thanks in advance, everyone!


PS! If I've skipped some vital details or you just need additional info,
just say so and I'll see what I can whip up.

I "fixed" it by simply disabling the HAL-service as it also wouldn't detect my USB Mobile Pen *waves fist*
Wrote this post in the hope that others with the same and/or similar problems might find this useful. :-)
