Create a group for floppy access (say 103) and dos (say 104).
If you use the gid=103 (floppy) and umask=227 you can limit the
*access* to file systems like vfat, msdos. The mounting will be
possible but users not in floppy (or whatever you use here) will have
no access to the mounted filesystem. I have no idea about iso9660
with Rockridge extension (which has its own file permissions stored).
My cdrom (/dev/scd0) has the permissions: "brw-rw---- 1 root cdrom "
but this won't help you with IDE drives.
