Description Jeremy Katz 2000-08-22 20:48:29 EDT
Unless I'm off my rocker here, the installer creates symlinks for CD-ROM
drives as /dev/cdrom, /dev/cdrom1, ...  Although by default these devices
are set up to be mountable by the user, /etc/security/console.perms only
changes the permissions on /dev/cdrom and /dev/cdwriter as opposed to
/dev/cdrom* and /dev/cdwriter
