The culprit is gnome or kde... for kde, I don't know, but for gnome you
have a System>Preferences>Removable medias (something like that) where
you can choose what you want.

Anyway there is some problem there: as cd/dvd devices are no more
mentionned in fstab, I think that if you don't use auto-mount, you will
be unable to mount your cd/dvd if you are not root....

This is boring: same happens if you want to format a cd/dvd/usb-key...
whatever, you cannot unmount them to perform the operation if you are
not root...
