what does locked mean? you probably want to look at /etc/fstab and see that those mountpoints are set as user-mountable ('user' as one of the options)

I've got this in /etc/fstab
/dev/scd0 /mnt/cdrom auto user,iocharset=iso8859-1,exec,codepage=850,ro,noauto 0 0
/dev/fd0 /mnt/floppy auto user,iocharset=iso8859-1,sync,exec,codepage=850,noauto 0 0

I try to access the cdrom
bash: cd: /mnt/cdrom: Permission denied

What's this telling me?

Try removing those lines from the fstab and then mount the devices manually and see if you can access them.
