I did something REALLY stupid - trashed /mnt/cdrom


Hi, as you can see from the above title, I really screwed things up.

I deleted (trashed) the /mnt/cdrom folder and I can't seem to get it back, any ideas on how to get it back? I did it in the first place, because I thought it worked like Macs, trash it to release it from the system... the OPEN CDROM button didn't work on the CDROM.

Thanks in advance...

The /mnt/cdrom is just a directory. As root open up a terminal and type:
mkdir /mnt/cdrom

And it's back.

Cool

Ah, yes, and then after creating the directory follow it up with:
chmod 755 /mnt/cdrom

This will set the appropriate permissions on the directory.

Cool
