As you didnt state : wether the drive is attached to the PC or what steps you have taken so far and errors it throws I will assume its attched to your computer and you just want to be able to read it. in which case just insert a cd into the drive , open a terminal and type:
mount /dev/cdrom /media/cdrom
if that doesnt work (only if above fails)
mount /dev/cdrom /media/cdromdrive
you have to be root for all these commands to work.if it doesnt work post all errors you get.
Hi, I am a newbie and is looking for solution to use cd-rom under redhat
Xen (virtual machine of windows 2003, I only can see the qemu cd rom but can't use it), I found one solution as Installing and using a fully-virtualized Xen guest
Using a real CD-ROM drive
You can also use a real CD-ROM drive in the virtual guest. Use the following device entry for the guest CD-ROM drive, changing the source option to list the device name of the CD-ROM drive to be used:
<disk type='block' device='cdrom'>
It looks like I should modify a file when the linux boots
