If I understand it right, data CD mounting works both for the
cdrecorder and dvd now. /bin/mount is a suid root program so any user
can mount and access the device /dev/dvd even when root is its owner.

The problem with audio CDs is that kscd is not suid root and therefore
the device /dev/dvd must be owned by the user who invokes kscd (or the
group permissions and ownership must be changed). On my system, the
ownership of /dev/cdrom changes when I log in:

$ ls -lL /dev/cdrom
brw------- 1 malusek malusek 11, 0 Sep 24 2001 /dev/cdrom

But I don't know how to force this change for /dev/dvd too. I know a
workaround but it may be better to wait if someone knows a
"recommended" solution.
