The following is the contents of my /etc/fstab.

When my computer boots I get the message "cannot stat /dev/cdrom" and
the cdrom is not useable.  My cdrom1 has been broken for sometime now.
I have removed some spaces because of wordwrap in yahoo mail.

It was working fine yesterday.  Can anyone tell me what might be wrong?
