You need to edit /etc/fstab (as root) so that the option "user" is enabled for /dev/cdrom. e.g.

# /etc/fstab: static file system information.
# <file system> <mount point> <type> <options> <dump> <pass>
/dev/hda5 / auto defaults,errors=remount-ro 0 1
/dev/hda6 none swap sw 0 0
proc /proc proc defaults 0 0
/dev/fd0 /floppy auto defaults,user,noauto 0 0
/dev/cdrom /cdrom iso9660 defaults,ro,user,noauto 0 0
/dev/dvd /mnt/dvd iso9660 defaults,ro,user,noauto 0 0
/dev/hda2 /mnt/windows vfat defaults,user,auto,umask=000 0 0

You should then be able to mount/access your CD-ROM drive.

As for your sound issue - try running sndconfig as root. Mandrake might have added some other sound utilities, but I know this worked in Mandrake 8.0.

NB - To login as root you can simply open up a terminal and then type su, and enter your password for root. Then you might edit using kwrite (kwrite /etc/fstab), gedit (gedit /etc/fstab) etc.

Edit this line:

/mnt/cdrom /mnt/cdrom supermount dev=/dev/hdc,fs=iso9660,ro,--,iocharset=iso8859-1 0 0

Add the word user to it. Like this:

/mnt/cdrom /mnt/cdrom supermount dev=/dev/hdc,fs=iso9660,ro,--,iocharset=iso8859-1,user 0 0
