Unhappy use cdrom and floppy in Mandrake 8


I finally can access my cdrom and floppy
after : supermount -i disable.

However, my fstab has now changed into this:
/dev/hda8 / ext2 defaults 1 1
/dev/hda6 /boot ext2 defaults 1 2
none /dev/pts devpts mode=0620 0 0
/dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom iso9660 ro,nosuid,noauto,nodev,exec,user 0 0
/dev/fd0 /mnt/floppy vfat sync,nosuid,noauto,nodev,user,unhide 0 0
/dev/hda5 /mnt/windows vfat iocharset=iso8859-1,umask=0,nosuid,user,exec,noauto,nodev,codepage=850 0 0
none /proc proc defaults 0 0
/dev/hda7 /usr ext2 defaults 1 2
/dev/hda9 swap swap defaults 0 0

I can play music via multimedia -> cdrom can open location to cdrom and floppy but there's never any content (o files,...)

also trying to mount i get:
mount /mnt/cdrom
mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/cdrom,
or too many mounted file systems

but when using umount he says it's not mounted????

Any suggestions?anyboby?
