How are you trying to mount the cdrom? From the GUI interface or from the command line.
You might want to check your fstab file in /etc, to check to see if your cdrom is in this file. You might want to check also if you have a /cdrom directory in your /mnt directory, if not create it. Then you can try this at the command line:
# mount /dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom
# cd /mnt/cdrom
# ls

If you don't get any errors from the first line, then you cd into the directory, and then you can ls to browse the contents of your CD.

Good Luck.

When trying to mount from Gui

Warning

mount:the kernel does not recognize /dev/cdrom as a block device (maybe insmod driver )

fstab

LABEL=/ / ext2 defaults 1 1
LABEL=/boot /boot ext2 defaults 1 2
/dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom iso9660 noauto,owner,ro 0 0
/dev/fd0 /mnt/floppy auto noauto,owner 0 0
none /proc proc defaults 0 0
none /dev/pts devpts qid=5,mode=620 0 0
/dev/hda6 swap swap defaults 0 0



Seem to have got most other things working ,this is my first install of Linux ,so i might not be giving you all of the information you need to help me.

What happens when you mount from the terminal or command line?

Or try to change your noauto in your fstab file to defaults.

mount: /dev/cdrom is not a block device

This is the message

Try your fstab entry with this for the cdrom:

/dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom iso9660 auto, defaults 0 0

See what that gives you. I am not sure what I have setup for my defaults, not at machine right now.
