Did you install PC/OS using this drive? What is your hardware configuration. I may not be able to help you, but if you supply this information it may allow others to discern the source of your problem.

I haven't used PC/Linux OS very much, but could it be a permission problem? Usually it says "Permission denied" then but it might be worth a try mounting as root.

As root:
mount -t iso9660 /dev/scd0 /media/cdrom
(assuming the /media/cdrom folder exists and is empty).

I think I've seen in other distributions that the CD/DVD is called "sr0", but that might depend on the type of CD-drive.
