Mounting CD rom and Floppy Drive


I already have the 4 Suse 9.1 cd's which I bought on the internet without a manual. And I heard that when I install it I have to mount my cd rom and floppy drive, so how do I do that?

this is sooooo in the wrong section

but

check to see if /media/cdrom0 exists

or if /mnt/cdrom0 exists

if either one exists then just type mount /xxx/cdrom0 #xxx is whatever directory it's in for suse... i forget personally

to unmount... do the same thing but umount

you should be able to do

"mount /media/cdrom" or "mount /media/floppy"

sometimes the mount points are under /mnt, so you would do

"mount /mnt/cdrom" or "mount /mnt/floppy" or "mount /mnt/fd0"

for more info, look at "/etc/fstab", "man fstab", or do a search for mounting linux devices.
