"Well im trying to install Quake III but I cant mount my cd drive... it says that /dev/cdrom doesn't exist? "

Use this command:
ls -l /dev/cdrom
to check /dev/cdrom. If /dev/cdrom does not exist then make it a symbolic link to your CD device. For example if your CD device is /dev/hdd then:
ln -s /dev/hdd /dev/cdrom
