fstab question


I have a combination CDrom and DVD rom. I can not view DVD's. I have downloaded MPlayer using apt-get. When I go into fstab the only drive showing is the CDROM this is my fstab:

LABEL=/ / ext3 defaults 1 1
LABEL=/boot /boot ext3 defaults 1 2
none /dev/pts devpts gid=5,mode=620 0 0
none /proc proc defaults 0 0
none /dev/shm tmpfs defaults 0 0
/dev/hda6 swap swap defaults 0 0
/dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom udf,iso9660 noauto,owner,kudzu,ro 0 0
/dev/fd0 /mnt/floppy auto noauto,owner,kudzu 0 0
/dev/hda2 /mnt/windows ntfs ro

I can play my music cd's and my svcd's but I can't play my dvd's?
Anybody got any suggestions

thanks for the help in advance.

fstab has nothing to do with watching dvd's. in mplayer just reference the /dev entry directly. by default /dev/dvd will be used, but running "mplayer dvd://1 -dvd-device /dev/hdc" will play the 2nd track on that dvd (hdc=secondary master)
