Since you already now know both the device (/dev/cdrom) and the mountpoint (/mnt/cdrom) and you have wriiten the CD with an iso9660 filesystem combine all that you have done and learned;
mount -t iso9660 /dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom
or if you want; mount -t auto /dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom
See the man page for the details, options and additional information, from the console or xterm session type; man mount
Most Linux commands are also documented this way (man pages or info pages)
Some suggested reading;

a nice place to start learning Linux. And before I forget Welcome to Linux!!!
I greatly appreciate everyone's help.
I'm also feeling close to exploding because I STILL haven't been able to make this work. I've spent hours just trying to get the #!%# cdrom to read the cd. I'm stuck and desparate. I've read the Howto's Lenard sent and found the bit about adding "joliet" in fstab, but that didn't work.
Currently Fstab shows cdrom:
/dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom auto noauto,owner,ro 0 0
Here is what I've tried:
In addtion to finalizing the session, I've closed the cd
*I've tried burning it in iso 9660
*I've tried whatever the 'easy cd creator' default burning fs is
*I've changed fstab to iso9660 instead of auto
*I've changed fstab to iso9660,joliet instead of auto
*I've changed fstab 'owner' to 'users'
*I've tried various combinations of the above
*I've tried mount -t udf /dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom
*I've tried mount -t iso9660 /dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom
I've gotten so many different errors I don't remember them all. The last was:
mount: block device /dev/cdrom is write-protected, mounting read-only
mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblcok on /dev/cdrom, missing codepage or other error
If I place an adobe installatin cd into the drive, it reads it right away... it will not read the data cd's I've burned (I'm trying to install ndiswrapper by cd since I have no internet access)
I feel like I'm tilting at windmills...
Any help greatly appreciated.
