mounting dvdrw in latest etch

I am trying to mount my sohw1693s liteon dvd rw drive in etch amd_64.

I think I have edited /etc/fstab nearly out of existence and can't 
remember the original settings that didn't work.

I recently did a netinstall of debian amd64.  I have a gigabyte intel 
chipset 945 board with two sata hdd one with win xp and the other with 
linux on them.  I simply use bios to select which drive to boot with.  
All is fine, installed with kde3.5 and i can even see my usb drive when 
plugged in. 

However, I cannot find my dvd rw drive and have no idea of how to set 
it up for automatic mounting etc (maybe in HAL?).  It is an ide drive 
and i have set the jumper to slave for now as master wasn't working.  
My fstab is set to the following:

# /etc/fstab: static file system information.
# <file system> <mount point>   <type>  <options>       <dump>  <pass>
proc            /proc           proc    defaults        0       0
/dev/sda1       /               ext3    defaults,errors=remount-ro 0       
/dev/sda5       none            swap    sw              0       0
#/dev/sdc        /media/cdrom0   iso9660  user,noauto,ro     0       0

I have commented out the last line out of frustration and thought 
perhaps i shouldn't have a line in fstab as HAL might take care of 

Any help is accepted with wide open arms.
