[mythtv-users] automount dvd drive

Ok, so I'm sort of new to mythtv and I think I have a general inquery 
that I can't seem to find on google. I'd think this was a very common 
question but I guess I just don't seem to be searching correctly or 

I need my dvd drive to automount when i stick the disk in so I don't 
have to have a box with ssh on it. I am running debian sid with the 
packages listed from the mythtv howto. I have monitor dvd/cdroms checked 
in mythfrontend.

my setup is like this

/dev/hdc        /media/cdrom0   iso9660 ro,user,noauto  0       0

then I made a symlink for the heck of it
ln -s /dev/cdrom0 /dev/dvd

I really don't know what else to do, I don't have kde or gnome on the 
frontend because I didn't think I needed either. Should this be working 
or something? Any pointers would be appreciated.
