type into the console "man mount" ommiting the quotes.
you will be given the instuction manual to the mount command.

you need to mount your cdrom.
mount /dev/yourCDROM /your/mountPount.

proobably mount /dev/hdX /mnt/cdrom
then the cdroms files will apear at the mount point. X is a,b,c or d, and can be determined with "dmesg | grep cdrom"
