I noticed when I compiled the kernel that there was an option for this. I did not use it, but what is everyone's opinion of it?

Moving to General Linux, as it's not Gentoo-specific.

I'm not sure which kernel option you are talking about, but you can set up /etc/fstab to automatically mount CDs at boot time if you want. It seems rather silly to me, unless you have some dedicated files you are always serving on that CD or something. For general desktop usage, I don't find it overly burdensome to type
Code:
# mount /mnt/cdrom
