rip tools non root

I'd like to be able to use rip tools beeing non-root. I'm curently using grip but the same problem appears whatever I use.
The machine is full-scsi with suse 7.2
brw-r--rwx 1 root disk 11, 0 May 21 2001 /dev/sr0
brw-r--rwx 1 root disk 11, 1 May 21 2001 /dev/sr1
As you can see I've allready chmod'ed the device.
The command
grip -d /dev/sr0
Which says when I try to rip a track that it's unable to open the device

Edit the file /etc/fstab and make sure the user is allowed to mount and access the cd drive. Something like:

/dev/sr0 /mnt/cdrom auto user,noauto,nosuid,exec,nodev,ro 0 0

Run "man mount" for more information.

I am able to (u)mount the CD's as a standard user. The only difference in fstab would be that yours mention the setuid in the option. I'll try this.
I doubt that it has anything to do with mount since we aren't mounting the disk as a filesystem.
