Ok, I finally got some time to try this. I'm not using the XUbuntu
system I setup on my friend's computer but I tried it in XUbuntu running
in VirtualBox on one of my computers. When I manually mount the audio
CD, Rhythmbox *does* see it. Does this mean, audio CDs will need to be
manually mounted before they can be access in Rhythmbox or can they be
auto-mounted via /etc/fstab?
