I think KDE 3.5 fixes that.  I used to have that problem too.  I think
it is a problem between the automounters and KDE not speaking well.  I
noticed that when I upgraded to KDE 3.5 that ivman, hal and dbus had to
be upgraded as well and are not compatible with older versions.

You may also want to check the config files for permissions issues.  I
suspect that is one thing.  Also check that there is nothing in fstab
about the cdrom.  If it is, try to comment it out and the restart
whatever automounter you are using.

Keep in mind that I use Gentoo and have not used Redhat before, did use
Mandrake for a while though.  Your mileage may vary.
