automounter works in gnome ( init 5 ) but not without gnome ( init 3 )

I am trying to get my Linux  5 system to mount media in the cdrom (had).  If I start the system in graphical mode ( run level 5 )  the iso image pops up on the desktop and if I perform the command "mount" on that machine I can see the mount point.  

Now If I start the system in runlevel 3 ( bash shell, without gnome )  the image will not automount and I can not seem to mount the image regardless if what I do.

How do I mount a cdrom in redhat while the system in in runlevel 3 ?

# chkconfig --list|grep autofs
autofs         	0:off	1:off	2:off	3:on	4:on	5:on	6:off
# chkconfig autofs on
