    supermount - im confused

    Hi there everyone.

    I'd like to ask you about this supermount that mandrake 9.1 uses.
    you see, i've got a mandrake on my comp at home but debian at a comp at school. the thing is that i kinda know how to use the mount and umount command at the debian comp but i want to know why so many mandrake users (that ive read about on webpages) prefer to turn the supermount off and use the standard "mount-precedure" as debian uses.

    ive also figured out that it is probobly because of this supermount that i cant install my ut2003 but thats a different story.

    whats so good with supermount, how can you turn it of, why should i, and so on ......

    I'm not sure what's so great about supermount, but you can edit your fstab entry and make your cd drive mount like this:
    /dev/cdroms/cdrom0      /mnt/cdrom      iso9660         noauto,ro       0 0
    Just replace the /dev/cdroms/cdrom0 to wherever your cd drive points to.
