mount / unmount

I'm trying to use the mount / unmount command as root but am getting a "mount: permission denied" error. How do I fix this? I need to be able to manually do this for the UT2k3 install.

If you tell us what your trying to mount and more details of the device your trying to mount, it might help us determine the problem.

sorry. I'm trying to mount / unmount a cdrom. When installing UT2k3 you have to manually mount/unmount the drive to change cd's or it won't recognize it. But when I type in

mount /dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom

I get the error above.

You might need to disable supermount. See man pages for details.
