Mounting it as a CD-ROM is the right thing to do. A data DVD like the
FC3 installation DVD is basically just a "big" CD.

However, if the mounted filesystem displays as empty rather than showing
the contents of the DVD, then that is a problem. It works fine here,
displaying correctly both for "ls" on the terminal and using nautilus.
