ls -l /dev/hdc
ls -l /dev/fd0

this will list the ownership of /dev/hdc; /dev/fd0 (assuming hdc is
your cdrom, fd0 is your floppy). It should list something like

brw-rw----    1 root     cdrom     22,   0 2004-05-02 04:47 /dev/hdc
brw-rw----    1 root     floppy     2,   0 2004-05-02 04:47 /dev/fd0 

In your system, make sure that you now belong to the groups cdrom and
floppy with the command adduser.

Then add the corresponding entries in /etc/fstab
