help mounting a cdrom


I'm running redhat 8.0 - when I login as a user other than root and try to mount the cdrom via the kde desktop icon I get

"mount: only root can mount /dev/scd0 on /mnt/cdrom"

How can I fix this so anyone can mount it ?

Put "user" in the 4th column in /etc/fstab next to the cdrom device.

For instance:

Code:
phyx@phrankenstein:~$ cat /etc/fstab
/dev/hda1        swap             swap        defaults         0   0
/dev/hda2        /                ext2        defaults         1   1
/dev/hdc1        /mnt/hd          ext2        defaults         1   1
/dev/cdrom       /mnt/cdrom       iso9660     noauto,user,ro   0   0
/dev/fd0         /mnt/floppy      auto        noauto,owner     0   0
none             /dev/pts         devpts      gid=5,mode=620   0   0
none             /proc            proc        defaults         0   0
Hope this helps.

Hi kkempter,

I think you just check file permission,

here is,

cd /mnt/
ls -l

and check it,it should be some think like,

drwxr-xr-x 2 root root Date(what ever) cdrom

and see wether root had change that file permission.
