    To create user do

    Code:
    useradd <username> to create the user
    passwd <username> to set users password
    To mount cdrom

    Code:
    mount /mnt/cdrom to mount
    umount /mnt/cdrom to umount
    eject /mnt/cdrom to eject tohe cd
    To install your video drivers read the installation instructions. It depends if the driver is from source or by rpm-packages.

    If that's a GeForce card, go to nVidia's site and download their Linux drivers. You'll find the installation instructions there.
