I think you just have to use the proper program to play an audio cd! You said
you are using kde 2.2.1, so try typing 'kscd' in a xterm or find this program
somewhere in the K menu. Perhaps you have to make some changes to the default
settings so that kscd can find your cd drive (/dev/hdc, for example), but
that's all you have to do normally. And don't forget to check if your user
account has the correct permissions to access /dev/hd? (the cd drive)! No need
to mount an audio cd.
