Just to be sure I did this the correct Debian way: to let myself play audio
CDs, I added myself to the disk group.
I can play CDs now, so everything works. But again I want to do this right.
now your user can write to ALL disks even your ext2 filesystems, any
nasty program you might accidently run can destroy everything on your
disks! your as good as root when you have gid disk.
the proper way to identify your cdrom device and do a chgrp cdrom on
it, then add yourself to group cdrom instead.
if its a ATAPI cdrom (probably) and its master on the secondary IDE
its /dev/hdc if its slave on primary its /dev/hdb..
some cdrom devices already have the group set to cdrom, but not the
IDE ones since they could be a disk or a cdrom..
