Can you not mount the CDROM at all or does it merely not auto-mount?   
I have the latter problem, which is a little annoying at times.   
Doing a "mount /media/cdrom" as root mounts the CDROM and puts it on  
the Desktop of the currently logged in Gnome user.  I never made the  
correlation with having an NFS mounted home directory.  In our  
environment, root can not access (read or write) the users' home
