User can't mount device


When I log in as normal user (not root) and I want to
mount my cdrom device but it alert me that
"only root can mount this device!!" or something like this
How can I mount my cdrom without root permission?

Thanks in advance.

Edit your /etc/fstab file and add "user" to the options (4th field in the file) for your CDROM drive. That will allow non root users to mount the device.

Hi

Add "user" if you wish that other users should be able to mount the device.
If you want that other users should also be able to unmount the device add "users"

Hope that helps.
