Try ls -l /mnt/cdrom if it still tells you it does not exist then mkdir /mnt/cdrom to create the mount point.

Use:
Code:
cat /proc/scsi/scsi
Is your cdrom listed there? If it is not you must load the module for your scsi adapter first.
If it is, try to find the device name (run dmesg). Mine for example is /dev/sr0
And then:
Code:
mount /dev/<device> /mnt/cdrom
Good luck

The above has a typo it should be cat /proc/scsi/scsi.

This is for the 2.4.x and older kernels to do scsi emulation for burning CDs. If you have a real scsi cdrom you don't need it.
