Hey that is good to know. I've got that filed away in my brain now for the future, and written down in case my brain short circuits, lol.

I've heard that before, but for some reason it didn't register. I'll remember that now.
Anyway guys I've got this one solved. Of course now that I check back I see you have a different solution from the one I came up with, but that's ok because what I did solved both my issue here, and one I posted in another thread. Basically what I did was create a new folder called /partitions with the ownership of this folder set to my account, and mounted my other partitions in there in folders named after each. I then changed the owner of /media back to root. Now not only does the kids account have access to the optical drives, but they can't see the other partitions at all, let alone access them. Before by mounting the partitions in /media the drives were showing up in the "Places" menu under all accounts. By mounting them elsewhere the system does not consider them drives and does not put them in the "Places" menu. This is great as the kids won't even see them.
Thanks again for the help guys!
