Does Fedora core 6 supports dvdrom?

Hi all,
I would like to know wether FC6 supports dvdrom or not. Because after installing FC6 from dvd including xen, it seems to be not supporting DVD'S. yeh CD'S are working fine but when i put dvd in dvdrom i cant view its contents.
yeh offcourse its dvdrom, i am not playing with cdrom here.
and its version is :
standard IDE : [HL-DT-ST RW/DVD GCC-4481B-(S]
Do i have to install any specific drivers to get it work over FC6 OR the issue is something else? pls help
Any help would be appreciated!!!!!
Thanks in advance

Have a look at both the /etc/fstab and /etc/filesystems files, do you see something like udf or auto (just for /etc/fstab) in them???

If not add them, sample /etc/fstab entries (only one need per device);
/dev/hdc                /media/cdrom            auto    noauto,users,ro 0 0

/dev/hdc                /media/cdrom            iso9660,udf    noauto,users,ro 0 0
Sample /etc/filesystem file;

$ cat /etc/filesystems
nodev proc
nodev devpts

You might want to also check while your at it that the udf kernel module is available;

/usr/bin/locate udf.ko

Hi Lenard,
Thanks for replying.
But i am lil confused about the answer you gave. OK firstly i have to check these two files i.e. etc/fstab and /etc/filesystems and if they dont have anything like udf or auto i have to add it...fine
I am confused about the code part because of so much of space between them, well what exactly is it like? Do i have to give that much space or ?
I am quite new to linux so just want 2 be sure of what i do.
thanks again
