fstab and directcd

I set up a linux box to be used primarily as an image analysis machine
for one of our techs

She has an enourmous volume of CD's created with directcd on windows.

The machine won't mount them. I assume I have to change the details of
fstab to support the file system used by directcd- but I don't know what
that is?

I want to get this working ASAP so I don't want to RTFM :) - please
indulge me.

So does anyone know what file system directcd creates files in? Is if
vfat udf something else.

How do you set up fstab to support multiple files systems for a single
device and can they be detected automatically when mounted. Do I have
to get our tech to learn the subtleties of mount ?
I want the machine to be able to read generic cd-roms as well - and it
wouldn't hurt to have it read what ever format Macs like to write cds with.

One of the reasons I'm setting up this machine is so that I can show
other people in our dept how effective linux, gimp, ImageJ, tnimage and
scribus are - and that we don't need to spend $1000.00's buying a copy
of photoshop and a new computer to run it for every lab.
