Shalom,

1) Share the CD-rom with either CIFS/9000(Samba) or NFS. With NFS add it to /etc/exports, configure it as read only. exportfs -av

2)Mount with cifsclient or mount -t nfs, depending on which way you went. I'd go with NFS for software depots.

Re: Mounting Remote Drive

Hi,

NFS is the good way to share the CD-Rom, for software depot purposes.

Edit /etc/exports and make its entry as read-only.
do exportfs -av
and mount as nfs on remote server.

Thanks
