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?


I've no idea what actually goes on, I seem to remember someone saying
HAL wouldn't be used for this in FC%, but J. K. Cliburn's mail on this
thread suggests otherwise.

The mount point is /media/{volume.name}

As to security risks from unknown CDROMs in a GUI, unless the Gnome
people go crazy and start implementing something like Window's autorun
I doubt there's significant risk. (Buffer overrun attacks in previewed file
types like pngs maybe?)
