No, 5 has devfs.

Dany, make sure you have CD9660 compiled into the kernel, normal user aren'=
t=20
allowed to load kernel modules. Also securemode should net be set.
And the mountpoint should be owned by the user (which is in your case I thi=
nk=20
since its under $home).
I had the same problem and it was simply the missing CD9660 bits in the ker=
