Re: mount cdrom

You can use fstab, and configure a line like this:

/dev/disk/cdromc /mnt/cdrom cdfs ro 0 0

Ensure that the mount point exists.

Re: mount cdrom

I have a line like this in mine:

/dev/disk/cdrom0a /cdrom cdfs ro 0 0

Your device name might differ, the mount point
("/cdrom") might differ, and the "cdfs" part
depends on what's on the CD-ROM.

For details: man mount
