:You'd need to change the permissions so that non-root users could
:mount/unmount the CD volumes, which is documented in the FreeBSD
:FAQ/Handbook/somewhere in the mailing lists, I think.
:I'd advise taking an existing system (and spare CDROMs, if handy) and
:doing a test deployment first.

    I think there would be a bit of work involved to make it crash-free.
    Like adding code that allows the CD to be force-unmounted after having
    been taken out and making sure the filesystem doesn't panic when it
    suddenly loses it.  Things like that.  It's certainly possible to do it.

    No existing OS does a very good job at it, not even windows.
