if the cdrom device is not in your fstab you need to specify what to mount where
i.e.
mount /dev/cdrom /media/cdrom

see
man mount
for more info

I didn't know rh5 was on dvd...

do you sudo? ie; #sudo mount -t iso9660 /dev/hdc-or-sr0? /mnt-or-media/cdrom
is it mounted? $ mount (type mount and enter)
/dev/root on / type rootfs (rw)
none on /proc type proc (rw)
none on /dev/pts type devpts (rw,mode=0620)
/dev/hda1 on /mnt/win_c type fuseblk (rw,nosuid,nodev,noatime,allow_other,default_permissions,blksize=512)
/dev/hda3 on /mnt/hda3 type ext3 (rw,nosuid,nodev,users)
/dev/hda4 on /mnt/win_d type vfat (rw,nosuid,nodev,users,iocharset=utf8,umask=0)
/dev/sde1 on /mnt/win_e type vfat (rw,nosuid,nodev,users,iocharset=utf8,umask=0)
none on /proc/sys/fs/binfmt_misc type binfmt_misc (rw)
-mount shows ex. above. or you could just use your admin panel to add media and add/update from there. Isn't rh5 old?

is your DVD a repository of RPMs ?
if right you must change the repositories to find the DVD .

good luck
