    Here lately i've been having some trouble with my cdrom drive mounting it gives me this message :
    mount: can't find /mntcdrom in /etc/fstab or /etc/mtab
    and when i try to unmont it it gives me this message:
    umount: /mnt/cdrom/: not mounted
    Im using the mount and umount commands anyone have any suggestions for me to use?

    You need to have a line like the followin in order to mount a cdrom:

    /dev/hdc /mnt/cdrom auto umask=0,user,noauto,rw,exec,users 0 0

    That is assuming that hdc is your cdrom and is plugged into the 2nd IDE channel and is set as Master.
