Yeah, but the problem with that is that it's a bad thing to teach a newbie :-)
Granted, if he's the only one using his machine, or he doesn't care who can
get at his soundcard and cd drive it really doesn't matter, but I think it's
a better idea to espouse good habits like being security minded than it is to
teach a way out that is really no easier. You can achieve the same effect
with the same number of commands (su; adduser username cdrom; adduser
username audio) but still keep that small bit of security intact.
