Exclamation Problems with CD-ROM

I need your help.

When I open the Konqueror and enter to /mnt directory this try to access to the CD-ROM unit although doesn't have any CD inside, this it take a lot and I can never enter.

Somebody know how to disable the automatically mount??? Mandrake 8.0 only mount the CD when I access to the directory of the CD-ROM

Post your /etc/fstab most probably you have supermount tidbits and/or auto option in it.

This is my fstab file, I don't know very well the parameters:

/dev/hda7 / ext2 defaults 1 1
none /dev/pts devpts mode=0620 0 0
none /mnt/cdrom supermount dev=/dev/hdb,fs=auto,ro,--,iocharset=iso8859-1,codepage=850,umask=0 0 0
none /mnt/cdrom2 supermount dev=/dev/scd0,fs=auto,ro,--,iocharset=iso8859-1,codepage=850,umask=0 0 0
none /mnt/floppy supermount dev=/dev/fd0,fs=auto,--,iocharset=iso8859-1,sync,codepage=850,umask=0 0 0
/dev/hda5 /mnt/nt ntfs iocharset=iso8859-1,ro,umask=0 0 0
/dev/hda1 /mnt/windows vfat iocharset=iso8859-1,codepage=850,umask=0 0 0
none /proc proc defaults 0 0
/dev/hda6 swap swap defaults 0 0

In Mandrake 8.0 I never modified this file and it worked very well, I want to automount the CD only when I access to the directory /mnt/cdrom , no when access to /mnt
