I'm not sure.  Depend on what you want to do.  We also modify the
pam_group setup to add users in the cdrom and floppy group when they
log into the console, and I expect that to give access to the devices.
As for mounting, I expect hal will mount both cdrom and floppies when
requested using the dbus.

So in short, yes, I believe so, but am unsure what you want to do. :)
