    Try these commands as root

    mkdir /mnt/dvd # if not already present
    mount -t iso9660 -o ro /dev/hdc /mnt/dvd # I'm assuming your dvd drive is on your second ary IDE controller as master
    cd /mnt/dvd
    ls


    You should see the files on your dvd. (but only as root user)
    To see them as a normal user, add this line to fstab (or modify the existing one) {do this as root}

    /dev/hdc /mnt/dvd iso9660 defaults,users,exec,ro 0 0
    and run this command as a normal user:
    mount /dev/hdc

    before you can take your dvd out, you must unmount your dvd drive
    umount /dev/hdc

    THat would be
    Code:
    mount -t iso9660 -o ro /dev/hdd /mnt/dvd
    Primary master = /dev/hda
    Primary Slave = /dev/hdb
    Secondary master = /dev/hdc
    Secondary Slave = /dev/hdd

    I hope this helps
