mount USB CDROM - minimal install


Anyone know the command to mount a USB CDROM with a minimal RHEL 3 install? /dev/cdrom does not exist. (this is IBM BladeCenter, btw). Is USB even supported with minimal install?

i hope the minimal install has support for usb...

i'm at work so this isn't tested but try:

mkdir usb-cdrom
mount /dev/sda1 /mnt/usb-cdrom

man mount for options like -t type

hope it works

Didn't work (USB devices get presented as SCSI?) Thanks for the suggestion.

A USB cdrom drive will have a device ID of /dev/scd0 assuming no other SCSI CDROM drives. Verify with the lsmod command that the USB modules and SCSI modules are loading.
