This is probably a duplicate of bug #162347.
Perhaps... but that bug is about booting with a CD in the drive.
This one is mounting an empty CD.

If you have migrated this bug from an FC3 bug today, ignore this comment.]
Please retest your problem with todays 2.6.12-1.1398_FC4 update.
If your problem involved being unable to boot, or some hardware not being
detected correctly, please make sure your /etc/modprobe.conf is correct *BEFORE*
installing any kernel updates.
If in doubt, you can recreate this file using..
mv /etc/sysconfig/hwconf /etc/sysconfig/hwconf.bak
mv /etc/modprobe.conf /etc/modprobe.conf.bak
