As I stated I do not use Fedroa but found an example config section that may
match yours

;A share for the cdrom mounts at /media/cdrom
comment = Linux CD-ROM
path = /media/cdrom
read only = yes
locking = no
root preexec = /bin/mount /dev/cdrom /media/cdrom
root postexec = /bin/umount /media/cdrom

Hi Richard,

My logs are empty nothing in them.... When I try to access cdrom it has a
good long hard think about it (20-30 seconds) then comes up with

\\Epia\cdrom is not accessible. You might not have permission to use this
network resource....

There isn't a /cdrom folder no

Where is the best place to put this directory ? should I just create it in
the root of the filesystem ?
