ok tryed that, got device dos not exist but with a bonus this time, has (a path prefix isn't a directory) added to the message
how might i check the kernel and/or modules for the cdrom?
edit: dmesg | grep hdc shows my cdrom, before i was greping for "cdrom" and not getting anything.
edit again: so i tryed "mount /dev/hdc /mnt/cdrom" (without the / at the end of hdc and cdrom) and it worked beautifully! many thanks!
now if all gos well you wont hear frome me for a while.
