I'm trying to mount a DVD inside /var/www/html and serve it using httpd.
The problem is that the DVD have the wrong SELinux context

I try to do somethng like this:

mount  -o context=system_u:object_r:httpd_sys_content_t,ro /dev/cdrom 

but that doen't change the context on the mouned dvd, and consequently, 
apache fails to serve it.
If I run audit2allow it tells me to:
allow httpd_t iso9660_t:dir getattr;

I supose I could make such a module, but I rather not as there might be 
more dvds mounted elsewhere
in the system that should remain protected from apache.

Ideas anyone?
