Gentoo: Cd and Floppy drives won't mount.


when i try to mount either my floppy drive or my cd-rom drive i get this error

"mount: can't find (/dev/floppy,/dev/cdrom) in /etc/fstab or /etc/mtab"

any suggestions on how to correct this?

I'm running gentoo btw.

use the correct syntax.... it implies you're running "mount /dev/floppy" which, as the message clearly states, does not exist. the installation instructions for gentoo include a useful summary about editing fstab manually, you'll presumably want entries for /dev/fd0 and /dev/hdc or similar
