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
