Question Slackware and dvd

This has probably been asked a zillion times but, how does one get music cd's to work in Slack 8.0. I have my emu10k1 up and running and sound tests fine, my volume is turned up in sound mixer.kscd shows my cd is playing but no sound. This is my entry in etc/fstab " /dev/cdrom /media/cdrom auto ro,noauto,user,exec 0 0 " Could this be a problem? I copied that line from my SuSE 7.3 box cuz everything works fine on it. So, do you good people have a solution?

Are you trying to mount cdrom? If so, this is the problem, audio CD's are not mountable because there is no iso9660 filesystem on an audio CD.

Do you have an audio cable from the drive to your sound card?
