No X For Root, No Mounts for User

Linux Mandrake 9.0

Root cannot startx (I boot to Runlevel 3).  Regular user can start X just fine.
(Root gets error about unable to open device 0:0, or some such thing....)

Also, regualr user cannot access CDROMs, get error (You don't have access rights to this device).

1 Solution
startx - echo $DISPLAY, shud be :0.0
run   xhost +

cd - is cd mounted when error occurs?
   if so,   mount |grep cd  - check perms on mount directory
