[SLUG] Debian Drive Mounting

Another Debian newbee question.

I can't mount the cdrom or fdd from the desktop though the icons are there.
If I right click on the Icon there is no mount command in the menu
If I install medeia and click on the icon I get the following error box
"unable to run the command specified the file or directory
file:/mnt/cdrom does not exist" (same message for fdd)
I assume the fstab file needs tweeking and I have tried a few things with no luck.
I would like to have it set up so that the drives are mounted on Boot so that you can just
click on the icons and go.
Thanks for any help Maury
