most modern distributions automatically mount cd's/dvd's that are inserted into drives, what distribution and version are you using?
the error message means there is no static mounting values for /cdrom due to the fact that it should be dynamic since you most likely will be putting different cd's/dvd's in the drive, it would be more like
thats provided your cd drive is scd0, it might be something else
mount /dev/scd0 /cdrom
Im using Fedora 7, funny thing is, i used a cd to install this distro. And now its not detected. Weird.
What does that mean?
[root@computer user]# mount /dev/scd0 /cdrom
mount: you must specify the filesystem type
