Absolutely, but this is a separate issue.  You can still, in any desktop
environment, click on a CDROM icon in the filemanager/desktop/wherever,
and have the CDROM automounted.  That's done with pmount.

This is only /automatic/ mounting on CDROM insertion, where it pops up
a window or runs a program on insertion.  Without this automatic HAL
notification, you can still easily access the CD without any manual
"mount" command.
