Don't be a fool. _mount_ uses /etc/fstab, not vice versa. fstab provides
mount with the defaults for particular devices - that is, it _controls_

And your point is what? You've already said you need to be root to mount
/dev/sda2 - that's _because_ you haven't got it in fstab. You _don't_ have
to be root to mount /dev/scd0 - because it is in fstab and has the "user"
option. However, /dev/scd0 is only in there for legacy reasons, and would
still mount via hal, udev and pmount, automatically if you removed it from
the fstab file.
