Thanks Antonio, that's cleared up the bit about "sr0". I poked about a bit 
more, and tried commenting out the "cd" line in /etc/auto.misc, rebooted, but 
the problem was still there.

Often fixes are very simple things, and I decided to look at KDE's KsCD. By 
default it puts an icon in the taskbar. Simply right clicking on the icon, 
and quitting KsCD has stopped the messages, as you can see below.

Jul 12 17:16:15 localhost last message repeated 60 times
Jul 12 17:17:16 localhost last message repeated 61 times
Jul 12 17:18:17 localhost last message repeated 61 times
Jul 12 17:19:11 localhost last message repeated 54 times (messages stop)
Jul 12 17:24:12 localhost ntpd[1966]: synchronized to 192.168.0.230, stratum 2
Jul 12 17:25:26 localhost ntpd[1966]: time reset +7.968671 s
Jul 12 17:27:15 localhost kernel: sr0: CDROM not ready.  Make sure there is a 
disc in the drive.
Jul 12 17:27:46 localhost last message repeated 34 times (messages start)
Jul 12 17:28:47 localhost last message repeated 61 times
Jul 12 17:29:48 localhost last message repeated 61 times
Jul 12 17:29:53 localhost last message repeated 5 times (messages stop)
Jul 12 17:37:39 localhost ntpd[1966]: synchronized to 192.168.0.230, stratum 2
Jul 12 17:37:39 localhost ntpd[1966]: synchronized to 192.168.0.230, stratum 2

As you can see above, the messages stop after the entry at 17:19:11 after 
removing the taskbar icon for KsCD. I then open KsCD to change the default 
preferences, so that an icon for KsCD is not put on the taskbar, and the 
messages start again at 17:27:46. After editing the preferences I close KsCD, 
and the messages stop at 17:29:53.

I'm posting this from FC2, and KsCD has an icon in the taskbar there, but no 
odd messages. I will also fire up FC5, and FC6 to see if there any odd 
messages which appear to be associated KsCD's icon being in the taskbar.

It does seem odd though, that on Fedora 7's KDE, KsCD's icon in the taskbar is 
posting messages every second, complaining that there is no CDROM in the 
drive.

Thanks for your interest, and reply.

Nigel.

One problem fixed, one to go.
