How do you get the cd not to get mounted at system startup?

I disabled autofs from running at startup and commented out the line about the cd in /etc/auto.misc. When I insert a cd it doesn't mount it, but for some reason it mounts the cd during the startup of the system, when I log in the cd is already mounted.
Does anyone knows why is this happening and how to disable it? Thank you.

Look at /etc/fstab and see if your CD drive (usually /dev/hdc or otherwise /mnt/cdrom) has the noauto flag. If not, add said flag.

The "defaults" in fstab worked just fine for me until now. Thank you.
