Edit /etc/fstab, add auto to the options for the CD-ROM.

If you want to mount the same cd all the time, just remove the "noauto" (put "auto") entry in fstab, regarding the cdrom device. But this will fail if you swap cd's during use.
I guess what you need is automount, sort of using cd's just like in win, right?
