    That's fine but I had no CD drive until I changed fstab on both FC-5
    computers here?

    Obviously there's something going on that's not obvious to me ...

    could you tell me more about what you "changed"!

Yes I added:

/dev/hdc /media/cdrecorder auto defaults 0 0

and made a directory:

/media/cdrecorder

However this may not be the correct way to deal with the problem, it was just my solution.
This is the whole point . You should not have to do that in FC5.
What function of CD access do you not see without that line in fstab?
I don't recall the precise sequence of events but no doubt I attempted to "mount /dev/hdc" and the cd to "/media/cdrecorder" as I am accustomed to doing since FC4 and trying to look at a directory listing ...

I had other odd things happen with this FC5 installation and thought it was merely related to those peculiarities? In fact I did the installation twice since it did not offer me a chance to select the applications I wanted? I had installed FC5 from the same DVD on another computer via my LAN connection while this one ran FC4 and that went as expected, a normal install without problems.
