    put something like this in your /etc/fstab:

    /dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom udf,iso9660,noauto,owner,ro 0 0

    to mount it: simply type mount /mnt/cdrom
    to unmount: umount /mnt/cdrom

    here is my /etc/fstab

    # noatime turns off atimes for increased performance (atimes normally aren't

    # efficiency).  It's safe to drop the noatime options if you want and to
    # switch between notail and tail freely.

    Re:cds not mounting

    is /dev/cdroms/cdrom0 the real device name or is it /dev/cdrom like you said earlier?

    Re:cds not mounting

    I dunno /dev/cdrom points to /dev/cdroms/cdrom0 so it shouldn't matter right ???

    Re:cds not mounting

    i would type 'dmesg | less' to find out what your cdrom device is and then add it to the fstab as...

    /dev/xxx /mnt/cdrom iso9660 noauto,ro,user 0 0
    and also make sure you made the directory /mnt/cdrom for to mount to.

    I would also try what shebang said when you mount

    Re:cds not mounting

    how about something like this:

    mount -t iso9660 /dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom
    For Slack it is /dev/hdc for mine..

    If you are using SCSI emulation, it might be sr0 or sg0
