Group `disk'

I added myself to the `disk' group because I wanted to be able to play
audio CDs.  However, I noticed that this gives me write access to all
my hard disk device files.  Does this mean I will be able to format
them with fdisk and write arbitary data to them by doing e.g. cat >

That would be too much of a risk for my liking, and I don't want to
do a test to see if it is true!
