I don't recall the precise sequence of events but no doubt I attempted
to "mount /dev/hdc" and the cd to "/media/cdrecorder" as I am accustomed
to doing since FC4 and trying to look at a directory listing ...

Using Gnome on FC5 the normal behaviour is that when you insert a
data cd it is mounted under /media/<volumename>.  Personally I
find this a little inconvenient, but it's not impossible to work with.
Does this not happen for you?


Yes that would be inconvenient for me since I usually deal with CD's from the command line and I never use Gnome or KDE, preferred WindowMaker for a long time and a couple of years ago began using XFCE ...
This is all I find under /media/

ll /media/
total 8
drwxr-xr-x 8 bobg  544 4096 Apr 13  2005 cdrecorder
drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 4096 Apr 22 14:50 floppy

and I believe I created /media/cdrecorder out of necessity.
