mount: only root can do that



howdy everyone.

could someone tell me how to allow a regular debian user to mount a
cdrom? odd that, you can create the cdrom device with kde and mount it,
but the user can't use console mount commands to mount the same device.

here's the fstab:

# /etc/fstab: static file system information.
#
# <file system> <mount point>   <type>  <options>       <dump>  <pass>
proc            /proc           proc    defaults        0       0
/dev/hda3       /               ext3    defaults,errors=remount-ro 0       1
/dev/hda1       /boot           ext3    defaults        0       2
/dev/hda2       none            swap    sw              0       0
/dev/hdc        /media/cdrom0   iso9660 ro,user,noauto  0       0
/dev/fd0        /media/floppy0  auto    rw,user,noauto  0       0

and here's an example command i'm using to try to mount along with it's
output:

kevans@kevans:~$ mount -t auto /dev/hdc /media/cdrom0
mount: only root can do that

tia!
