So you still have the same problem?

The error message which you get could mean many different things, so everybodies problem could be different.

Just out of interest, on which IDE is the CD drive on?

Just making sure that you did have a CD in the drive you were trying to mount and it wasn't a music CD, cus they cannot be mounted.

I don't know about RedHat install, but I would imagine that you have the kernel ability to mount CD filesystems, and that the IDE/ATAPI is enabled in the kernel?

I fixed my cd-rom problem.

Redhat Linux 7.1 does have the ability to mount filesystems
as any other Linux based OS... but here was my problem:

For some reason when the kernel booted it refused to load
the correct modules.

With a bit of research I discovered that there were *2* modules
I needed to mount the cd-rom called:
cdrom.o
*and *
ide-cd.o
Usually the kernel loads these modules by itself at boot time.

I used insmod to load cdrom.o and then to load ide-cd.o.
Boom! I was able to mount the cd-rom.

Thanks for the help.... I am glad that this forum exists-
when I have another problem with Linux in the future
I know that there is *someone* out there who will try to help!

As I learn more, I promise to try to help others too....
