Unhappy Fedora 0: fstab /DEV names for a)CDROM b)DVDRW

Hi - Fedora 9
What are the "official" /dev/nnnnnn names to add to /etc/fstab for both a:
and DVDRW?
I have browsed /dev and indeed there are indeed entries for "CDROM" and "DVDRW", which seem obvious, but I'm not sure these are right (they don't work for me).
There also entries about which I'd appreciate some enlightenment, being /DEV/SR0, and /DEV/SR1.
What are these please?
Best of all would be if someone could actually post working line item fstab entries for thesew two devices.
All help greatly appreciated.

Question CD and DVD on Fedora

Further to my own request above, it seems that /DEV/SR0 is the fstab name for DVDRW, and /DEV/SR1 for CDROM.
Makes no sense given the intuitively obvious /DEV names mentioned above (CDROM and DVDRW), not to me, anyway.
Comments appreciated.
