dvdrom mount issues


I am currently running slackware 11. During the boot process both of my dvd drives are recognized but when i look in the storage tab in system section i see one of them. and for some reason this can only be mounted by root.

Yes, this is the default.

Just do this:
1) If you have 2 units you can make a mount point for the second one (all this as root):
Code:
mkdir /mnt/cdrom2
Know look for your second drive:
Code:
dmesg  | grep CD
this code will throw you the devices for your cd, something like
Code:
hdd: SONY CD-RW/DVD-ROM CRX850E, ATAPI CD/DVD-ROM drive
hdd: ATAPI 24X DVD-ROM CD-R/RW drive, 1536kB Cache
where hdd is the device.

Add an entry in your fstab:
copy the entry belonging to your cd and edit it with the proper device, i.e
Code:
pico  /et/fstab
Code:
/dev/sda5        swap             swap        defaults         0   0
/dev/sda2        /mnt/WinXP       ntfs        owner,ro,umask=000,gid=000         1   1
/dev/sda6        /                reiserfs    defaults         1   1
/dev/sda7        /home            reiserfs    defaults         1   2
/dev/cdrom       /mnt/cdrom       auto        users,noauto,owner,ro  0   0
/dev/sdb1         /mnt/flash       auto        users,noauto,owner     0   0
devpts           /dev/pts         devpts      gid=5,mode=620   0   0
proc             /proc            proc        defaults         0   0
to
Code:
/dev/sda5        swap             swap        defaults         0   0
/dev/sda2        /mnt/WinXP       ntfs        owner,ro,umask=000,gid=000         1   1
/dev/sda6        /                reiserfs    defaults         1   1
/dev/sda7        /home            reiserfs    defaults         1   2
/dev/cdrom       /mnt/cdrom       auto        users,noauto,owner,ro  0   0
/dev/hdd        /mnt/cdrom2       auto        users,noauto,owner,ro  0   0
/dev/sdb1         /mnt/flash       auto        users,noauto,owner     0   0
devpts           /dev/pts         devpts      gid=5,mode=620   0   0
proc             /proc            proc        defaults         0   0
and thats all

2) for the problem with the rights, just add the users token (see above) in the 4th column.

I'm pretty sure he meant

pico /etc/fstab

There's no directory called /et that I know of
