how do i comment out the last entry???
could you give me the exact steps to follow......................
please put as much details in the as possible(newbie to linux)....................sorry!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
okay this is what i i get from the last command you sad i should try........
[root@ip-0511 name]# mount -t iso9660 /dev/hdc /mnt/cdrom
mount: block device /dev/hdc is write-protected, mounting read-only
then it does open the dvd....
is there a way of correcting this............so that i can mount the dvd or cd without being root............
If you want to pass parameters while using the command then you have to root. A normal user don't have the priviledge to pass parameters.
For a normal user to mount your cdrom one must have an entry in the /etc/fstab file.
It should look like this
/dev/hdc /mnt/cdrom iso9660 defaults,ro,user,noexec,noauto 0 0
