Mount iLO virtual cdrom with linux

How can I mount the virtual cdrom under linux?
I use a BL20pG2 with SuSE SLES 8 (UnitedLinux 1.0), but I can't map cdrom
/dev/cdrom is a symlink to /dev/sr0.
I tried to load usb-storage, but it does not resolve my problem, and I always get a "mount: /dev/cdrom is not a valid block device" error.

Any idea?

Thanks in advance,
Roberto

Re: Mount iLO virtual cdrom with linux

The CD goes in your management station (PC)... and ilo will load it through the network...

Re: Mount iLO virtual cdrom with linux

Well, I know that the CD goes into my PC...
I "connect" the cdrom via ilo but I can't mount the cd in linux.

So my question is:
1) what modules are required to mount the virtual cd on linux
2) are there modules coming from hp to use this cd?
3) how can I mount the cd??

I want to make you notice that I installed linux booting the blade from cd mapped via ilo, and loading usb-storage/usb-ohci.

Before I couln't even see any scsi device under /proc/scsci
