    could you tell me more about what you "changed"!

Yes I added:

/dev/hdc /media/cdrecorder auto defaults 0 0

and made a directory:


However this may not be the correct way to deal with the problem, it was 
just my solution.
This is the whole point . You should not have to do that in FC5.
What function of CD access do you not see without that line in fstab?
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 ...

I had other odd things happen with this FC5 installation and thought it 
was merely related to those peculiarities?  In fact I did the 
installation twice since it did not offer me a chance to select the 
applications I wanted?  I had installed FC5 from the same DVD on another 
computer via my LAN connection while this one ran FC4 and that went as 
expected, a normal install without problems.

So did you do a clean install here?  or was it an upgrade?

There are some inconsistencies that are seen when doing an upgrade
because not everything gets put in place new.  Old configuration files,
some of the binaries that do not get removed, etc.

On my FC5 system done as a clean install the creation of the directories
and mounting of the cdrom gets done as expected.

A new install from DVD.  I had already copied all the DVD files to the hard drive and
used that to install to the first computer, box4, but I figured I couldn't very well
install to itself via that route on this computer, box1?  So I did a new install from the
DVD.  Problem was box4 had a CD drive that could not read a DVD and I was reluctant
to try FC5 on this computer first.  For what ever reason it did not let me select
applications or create a user.  When done I only had root, had to add bobg later?

The box4 install worked normally as have all the others I have done over the years.
