Help in Mounting my cd drives

I'm running SuSE Pro 9.2. How do I manipulate the fstab file to allow the mounting of my cdrecorder drives? Is there anyone with experience running cedega on SuSE? If so, what procedures did you go through to get cedega to run properly? Thanks.

This is the line from my fstab for my cdrom drive:
/dev/cdrom /media/cdrom auto ro,noauto,user,exec 0 0

When I do 'ls /dev/cdrom', I find that /dev/cdrom is a link to /dev/hdc. So, if you have more than one such drive, you will need one such line for each drive.

Here is a link to a tutorial on how to create devices and their links.

Your CD-Rom drive could also be /dev/scdX, where X is probably 0 or 1. This is because only a little while ago it was necessary to use SCSI-emulation to get IDE-CDWriters to burn CD:s.
