Re: eject cdrom
change(edit) your fstab file as shown as below,
ro,users,noauto,unhide,exec 0 0
now im going to explain above line meaning,
o /dev/hdc <this is ur cdrom> u can check this by issuing this #ls /dev/cdrom -al
o /media/cdrom <where u want to mount dz cdrom>
o auto <if ur driver dvd rom select as "auto" if not change it to "iso9660">
o ro = read only
o users = any user can unmount + mount
o not try to mount on boot time

/usr/bin/eject, in the properties/permission and
ticked the set uid box.
