[CentOS] Where is the proper place to set the group ownership of devices under /dev/ in Centos3.

Dear list members,

I have a DVD writer /dev/scd0 which after reboot has the following ACL:

brw-rw----    1 root     disk   11,   0 Sep  9  2004 /dev/scd0

However I want to set this device group to "Domain Users" in order to
enable its members to burn DVDs.

If i invoke: #chgroup "Domain Users" /dev/scd0
the next reboot will override the group back to "disk".

Is there a standard/reglamented way to set the group ownership of a device file.

Best regards!
