CD Rom Permissions

Hey all! I installed FC3 last night and everything is working pretty good. I am trying to rip some ogg files from an Audio CD, but it's telling me I don't have permission to access the CD-Rom drive. How do I give my account permission?

i think you've gotto make yourself member of the cdrom group.
edit the file /etc/group ( as root)
i don't know if FC uses the same file, maybe it's placed somewhere else ?

...and while you're at it, add yourself to
video, audio,floppy,disk and maybe some others also...
