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 ...


Using Gnome on FC5 the normal behaviour is that when you insert a
data cd it is mounted under /media/<volumename>.  Personally I
find this a little inconvenient, but it's not impossible to work with.
Does this not happen for you?

Some of us are adverse to checking unknown CDROMs from a GUI. Given
the choice I prefer to look at it from a bog standard command-line
bash session such as via alt-f1. Does the automount work there? And
where does it mount the drive?
