Exclamation Redhat 9 CD Automount

Hello everbody, if someone could help with what to me is a little redhat 9 annoyance I'd be much appreciative. I've scoured the internet for a solution but no luck!

Every time I stick a cd into the cd drive redhat automounts it, giving me a pop up menu and then opening an explorer. I'm a little old fashioned and prefer to mount it myself. So how do I turn off this little windowsesque feature?

I'm not running any of the following services, which from my scourings I vaguely recall may have something to do with the issue:


Any light shed would be gladly welcomed.
