From what I've heard that's among the easiest of exercises: You just 
tell the person that sits at the keyboard to type something in. Not 
that anyone cared for your box or my box really. But to get rid of 
naive assumptions has become a treasured habit here.

It's not the worst choice to focus on direction and application for a 
box. But in the end it gets so arduous. I'd miss the net definitely on 
my audio machine.

Oh, you shouldn't. Basically you never want to be root. On a CCRMA box 
you don't need to be anyway. Access to devices (like dvd) is permitted 
by various kernel-space mechanisms that let you work as user. Oh, and I 
claim the prize for most-general-non-helpful-line-of-the-day, ha.

Now this is where you need help and I don't have any, sorry. The path to 
cdrom should read "/media/cdrom" though, not "media/cdrom".
