    edit /etc/fstab

    look for the entry for your cd drive ... should look like

    /dev/hd? /media/cdrom auto pamconsole,...

    add the word users after pamconsole ...

    /dev/hd? /media/cdrom auto pamconsole,users,exec,...

    You may or may not have the word "pamconsole" in your fstab as not all distros are configured using pam.

    The main thing is to have "user" included in the line. Here is what the line in my fstab looks like for reference:

    /dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom iso9660 noauto,user,ro 0 0

    bobkat is using FC3 so I let the FC3 defaults (which includes pamconsole) remain while adding the user option.
