Question automount cdrom

I notice in some other distros that a cd can be mounted upon insertion. Is this possible in Slack 9? How?

Theres supermount and a few other kernel patches, but either they dont work w/ the 2.4.20 kernel, or with Slack 9.

Sorry, Ive looked into this, but maybe you'll have better luck. Try and search "Auto mount cd".
