    mounting cdrom?

    I'm running redhat 7.3

    can any one tell me what the command is to mount my cdrom drive?

    thanks in advance for your time!

    As root, usually: mount /mnt/cdrom

    take a look into your /etc/fstab file
    there you will find the dir where the contents of the cdrom are going to be mounted.

    something like /mnt/cdrom

    Also, the usual default permissions only allow root to mount/unmount removable media such as CD-ROMs and floppies. To change that, you'll need to alter the line in /etc/fstab that defines your CD-ROM's mount.

    It should look quite similar to this:

    /dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom iso9660 noauto,ro,user 0 0


    /mnt/cdrom is the mount point threadhead was referring to; your particular mount directory might not be same.

    The "user" option at the end of the line is what tells the system that it's OK for a non-root user to mount/unmount CDs.
