If you know how to patch compile a kernel you should go for supermount.
Grab the patch from http://supermount-ng.sourceforge.net/, patch the
kernel, compile supermount in :)
Then put something similar to this in your /etc/fstab:
/mnt/cdrom /mnt/cdrom supermount fs=iso9660,dev=/dev/sr1 0 0
Supermount mounts the CD as soon as you access it (I think) and unmounts
it when you press the eject button of the drive...
