Close, but you were actually closer the first time. I'm assuming you
want these discs to appear at /media/cdroms[0|1], whereas I'm mounting
my DVD drive at /dvd and my CD drive at /cdrom. This is what I would do,
given your mountpoints and devices:
/dev/acd0 /media/cdroms0 cd9660 ro,noauto 0 0
/dev/acd1 /media/cdroms1 cd9660 ro,noauto 0 0

device mountpoint filesystem type
See man fstab.
