    Installing package Cannot access CDROM help needed


    Hello all again...
    im trying to install GAIM IM
    gaim-1.0.3-0mdk10.0.i586.rpm
    dclick on it, tells me Im missing some package and asks me to put LINUX cd2 on device [/dev/hdb]
    first... I couldnt read the content of my LG 52X cdrom... so I played a bit with fstab, mounted... and it worked...
    but now... As far as my brain tells me, [/dev/hdb] doesnt point to my cdrom??? right?

    I need help with this little problem please

    thanks in advance
