Privilege Question


I was wondering what type of privileges I need to give to /dev/hdb (cdrom
device on my machine) to be able to access and eject the media.

The current mode has been set at install time by default as: 'brw-rw----'
and the file is owned by 'root disk' causing a program with open("/dev/hdb",
...) or the command 'eject /cdrom' to fail executing.

Running the code or command as root will work of course, but I don't really
like to do that. I was wondering what other debian ppc users have in their
settings. Thanks for your help,
