    Here is part of my fstab

    Ihave a cdplayer (cdrom) and a cdplayer/writer (cdrom2)

    /dev/hdc /mnt/cdrom auto umask=0,user,iocharset=iso8859-15,codepage=850,noauto,ro,exec 0 0
    /dev/hdd /mnt/cdrom2 auto umask=0,user,iocharset=iso8859-15,codepage=850,noauto,ro,exec 0 0

    and here is mount

    /dev/ide/host0/bus0/target0/lun0/part1 on / type ext3 (rw)
    none on /proc type proc (rw)
    none on /proc/bus/usb type usbdevfs (rw)
    none on /dev type devfs (rw)
    none on /sys type sysfs (rw)
    none on /dev/pts type devpts (rw,mode=0620)
    /dev/ide/host0/bus0/target0/lun0/part6 on /home type ext3 (rw)
    none on /mnt/floppy type supermount (rw,sync,dev=/dev/fd0,fs=ext2:vfat,--,umask=0,iocharset=iso8859-15,codepage=850)
    none on /proc/sys/fs/binfmt_misc type binfmt_misc (rw)

    I don't understand why it will work as root and not as a normal user. Do these settings change according to the user?

    ive nerver use grip but
    youre fstab and mtab look fine
    just check by puting in a cd (that auto mounts) and run mount to see if it gets updated

    i think its because you don't have mount permision try runing this
    (not good if you're running a super secure system)
    PATH = /bin:$PATH
    export PATH
    this will mean youre user can use anything in bin (like mount)

    should grip be trying to mount an unused cdrom ??
