Someone explain this "mounting" thing to me.
I have a problem, and I'm sure someone here can help me.
I recently installed Mandrake 10.1 on an old machine i got from one of my friends. I am totally new to linux, but i have to start somewhere. :)
My problem is. I simply don't understand how to gain access to my DVD drive. I think i figured out it has something to to with "mounting"?
I can use the drive when installing packages from the package management thingie ( I got the mandrake power pack). It simply asks me to put a certain CD in the drive, i do that, press OK, and it works.
But how do i gain access manually? If say, i wanted to read a document on the cd, or copy over some files?
I know this is a dumb question, but all pro's started as newbies :)
Since its not originally my computer, i cant tell you much about the drive.
It says on the front:
"Pioneer DVD-ROM Drive, Laser-memory"
