Why not use sudo (from the ports) and allow yourself (and anyone who
needs) to mount the cdrom?

Here's what I have in my sudoers file:

df      ALL=NOPASSWD:   /sbin/umount /cdrom,\                                   
                        /sbin/mount_cd9660 -o nosuid\,nodev /dev/acd0c /cdrom   

This means `df' can mount and unmount the cdrom. And I have a couple of
scripts, `cdrom+' and `cdrom-', which contain the allowed commands
above. As you see, I don't need a password or anything to mount the
cdrom (NOPASSWD).

The penalty for laughing in a courtroom is six months in jail; if it
were not for this penalty, the jury would never hear the evidence.
