Mount point /mnt/cdrom does not exist.


Hi,
I am runnning an old computer with slackware 7.1, with kernel image 'sbpcd.i', and a soundblaster cdrom. Here is my fstab line.

/dev/sbpcd0 /mnt/cdrom auto ro,user,noauto,exec 0 0

When I try to mount my cdrom, I just get the error 'Mount point /mnt/cdrom does not exist.'
What could my problem be?
Noah

Check if the /mnt/cdrom dir actually exists.

It doesn't. Should I create it? I'm not very handy with this type of problem. I pretty much only know how to fix sound and modem troubles.
