Question automounting


i just wanted to know, how can I not make konqueror open whenever I insert a CD?. I know that it automounts, it just irritates me, or is there a way to edit KDEinit? thanks for the attention

I thought that there is a file or module somewhere called autofs. This module auto boots your cdrom.

Turn off automounting, change this line in your /etc/fstab
/dev/cdrom /media/cdrom auto ro,noauto,user,exec 0 0

You then have to mount the cdrom manually when you need it:
mount /media/cdrom

Can't see why automounting irritates...
I finally fell in love with Linux after Mandrake 8.2, mainly because of automounting.
No more writing one novel just to take a look at some fricking floppy

Well, it's your business...
