problems mounting cdrom

I use Mandrake 9.2 and I have a problem mounting my cdrom. I tried "mount /dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom" but no cigar. The device /dev/cdrom does exist, that I know.

Any ideas?

Did you turn of supermount for good? :)

If it doesn't exist in your fstab you'll need
to specify a file-system ...

mount -t iso9660 /dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom

I'm not too sure about supermount, but when I tried that command as root, I got this error:

[root@genesisx mnt]# mount -t iso9660 /dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom
mount: permission denied

Note that I executed that command when I was root user.
Any ideas?

EDIT: Not only that, it seems I can't mount anything anymore since I get permission denied errors.
