cdrom mount problems with KDE 1.1.2

Here is a copy of my /etc/fstab:
/dev/hdb2       swap                      swap            defaults   0  
0
/dev/hdb3       /                         ext2            defaults   1  
1
/dev/hdb1       /boot                     ext2            defaults   1  
2
/dev/scd0       /scsicd                   iso9660         ro,noauto,user
0   0
/dev/hdc        /cdrom                    iso9660         ro,noauto,user
0   0
/dev/hdd4       /zip                      auto            noauto,user
0   0
/dev/fd0        /floppy                   auto            noauto,user
0   0
/dev/hda1       /dos                      msdos           noauto,user
0   0
none            /proc                     proc            defaults   0  
0

I created a second cd icon on the desktop called scsicd and was not
permitted to type in the mount point. Now, whenever I try to mount a cd,
regardless of which icon I use, it will only look for and mount the
scsicd.  I do not try to have all of these fs's mounted at the same
time.  I am able to mount both cdroms from a kvt, but clicking on the
icons does not work for opening up the directory. I am not so extremely
lazy that I cannot mount from kvt, I just want to make this work on
principle.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.
        TIA    damianks

> I created a second cd icon on the desktop called scsicd ...

I don't make any use of the desktop icons for mounting.   Try out using
KDiskFree (kdf), it's much better.   Leave it running on your desktop.

A single click on the icon at the left of each line will toggle
mounting and umounting of the device, with the whole line shown as bold
or greyed out accordingly.

1. mount error: mount only root can mount /dev/cdrom on cdrom

"That should do it.  I hope this was not to long an explaination, but
"I want you to have a fell for what you are doing before doing it.

"Now as to why...
"Most multitasking multiuser Operation system do not let users
"access the mount command.  Linux makes it possible for users
"to use the command, but doesn't give the privilage to automatically.
"Root has to set the priv on a per device basis.

   ... oh wow.  that was great.  thanks ...
