Cdrom mounting problems

I'm using mandrake 10.

I had kernel 2.6.3 and everything was great.

I compiled and loaded kernel 2.6.6

Now, when I type mount /mnt/cdrom, if get an error about wrong fs or bad option or bad superblock.

If I type mount -t iso9660 /dev/hdc /dev/cdrom it works.

I need to be able to use mount /mnt/cdrom like I did before the upgrade.

The file that deals with that stuff is /etc/fstab. Read it, see if anything seems wrong. Try 'man fstab' for an explanation of what the different fields are for.

Here is the current fstab file:

/dev/hda1 / ext3 defaults 1 1
none /dev/pts devpts mode=0620 0 0
/dev/hda6 /home ext3 defaults 1 2
/dev/hdc /mnt/cdrom auto user,unhide,umask=0,iocharset=iso8859-1,codepage=850,noauto,ro,exec 0 0
none /proc proc defaults 0 0
/dev/hda5 swap swap defaults 0 0

Any ideas?

Way to go, Kristian! That line fixed the problem for me.
