Depending on your settings, in the GUI mode HAL will create the
mount point for the CD/DVD and mount it when you insert the disk. If
you are using the cli, you can use gnome-mount to do the same thing.
Gone are the days of having to mount CD/DVDs by hand, and having the
mount point be in the /mnt tree.
