cdrom CDROM URIs; the only setting for CDROM URIs is the
mount point, cdrom::Mount which must be the mount
point for the CDROM drive as specified in
/etc/fstab. It is possible to provide alternate
mount and unmount commands if your mount point
cannot be listed in the fstab (such as an SMB mount).
The syntax is to put "/cdrom/"::Mount "foo"; within
the cdrom block. It is important to have the trailing
slash. Unmount commands can be specified using UMount.
