mount /mnt/cd <- check fstab to see the mountpoint for the cd and ls /mnt to make sure you have the dir(/cd) in there. You shouldn't, but if it complains about permissions, mount it as root.

What distribution?
Many of them automatically mount a CD when it is inserted.

# mkdir /mnt/cd
# mount -t iso9660 /dev/hdc /mnt/cd

To unmount:
# umount /dev/hdc

make sure before you do that...
-your cd drive is /dev/hdc If not, then substitute the correct block device for /dev/hdc

If everything works, add a line in /etc/fstab for your cd drive. This needs to be done as root.

/dev/hdc /mnt/cd iso9660 pamconsole,exec,noauto,managed 0 0

(I just took that part out of my /etc/fstab)

You can add an entry `user' to the "pamconsole..." part to allow users to mount it.
After that line is in the file, try mounting with a

# mount /dev/hdc




Hope this helps.

Just do a #mount /dev/cdrom .
Oh, and what game are you trying to install in Linux? Be forewarned, that without Cedega Windows games will not run! (Different API and catalog structure, no directX and so on..)
