cdrom: open failed


Hello, i'm a linux newbie.

I'm running Debian 3.0 : i successfully installed it but some errors appears on the screen : one of them shows this :

cdrom: open failed

I tried to configure cdrom with : mount /cdrom but this command seems doesn't run.

Anyone can help me? thanks in advance.

Is the cdrom being mounted? put a disc in the drive and type this in a konsole: mount

If your cdrom is mounted you will see /dev/hd(x) (x is the letter assigned to the cdrom i.e. hdc) on /mnt/xxxx

well, thank you for your answer.

I resolved with mount cdrom by this command : mount /dev/hdb -t iso9660 -r/cdrom
