post up your /etc/fstab

and then look thru your /dev directory and find where cdrom actually is......
on Slackware /dev/cdrom is a symlink to /dev/hdc usually!! not always,
see if you have the symlink and find where it points to.

It sound to me like linux is trying to mount (make avaliable) the CD-ROM and is looking in the wrong place. We need to see your fstab.

Open the file /etc/fstab and copy & paste its contens here.

How are you trying to mount the drive? As the other posters suspected, the method you are using looks for the CD-ROM at /misc/cdrom, when it is in fact at /mnt/cdrom.

So all that is required is changing "misc" to "mnt", but without knowing how you're doing this, we couldn't tell you more, unless another JAMD user happens by who knows.
