With your cd in. Open an xterm
at the command line
type
su (you will be prompted for a password enter your root password)

once you succesfully do that type
cat /etc/fstab

(a semi small list of things will show amoung them should be a line about /mnt/cdrom or /cdrom) write down that line
it will start with maybe /dev/hdb or /dev/hdc followed by /mnt/cdrom or /cdrom

type umount /dev/hd? (get it from the line in fstab) It should not say /dev/hda or anything with hda it will most likely say either hdb or hdc

type mount /dev/hd? /mnt/cdrom

type cd /mnt/cdrom

type ls -FC things that look like

games/ are directories
things without the " / " are files
you can cd through " / "

Well that as far as I can help.
