Hi Folks,

What is the proper way to enable selected users access
to the CDROM, especially if they log in remotely.  I use
VNC to remote login to my linux box all the time when I
am even in the same room.

I can get access to the CDROM as root user via VNC
but I dont want to do that.

I added myself as a user to the 'disk' group file, but that
does not seem to be the trick.

Any pointers?

Kind regards,
