Cd mounts auto


When i put cd's into the drive i have to log on as root and mount /dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom each time. What do I need to change here so that they stay each time, in the /mnt/ directory there always is /cdrom but it won't show anything that's on a cd unless i mount first. Here's the 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/hdb3 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/hda1 /mnt/windows vfat defaults 0 0
/dev/cdrom1 /mnt/cdrom1 udf,iso9660 noauto,owner,kudzu,ro 0 0
-------------------------------------------------
thanks

Try this:
/dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom auto ro,noauto,user,exec 0 0

And if that doesn't help do as root:
chmod 777 /dev/cdrom
