xfce4: mounting cd's & ipod


Hello guys,

after installing FC5 with the gnome desktop, I tried out xfce4.

But I don't know how to mount cd's & my ipod. With gnome it can be automatically...

Many thanks,

sareja

Well, it's very easy!
You can mount with the command mount.
CD's are the easiest- mount /dev/hdc /mnt/cdrom
Ipod is little bit diffrent: you will need also to define rules and fs:
mount /dev/sda -t vfat /mnt/whatever
note- in most cases it may not be sda, but sda1, sda2 etc... so try that.
for more info try mount --help or man mount

It's a pity. I even didn't find any documentation on the xfce-web site
