Mounting


i put in a blank cd so i could burn something, and i went to konsole and typed in mount /dev/cdrom
it then said "mount: can't find mnt/cdrom in ect/fstab or ect/mtab.

Can anyone tell me what i did wrong ^^

If the cd works on your system, I'd look in fstab to see what they did call it. Burners run under scsi emulation, so it might be called /dev/sda*.

post your /etc/fstab here, we'll take a look. And what are you trying to mount, an empty CD?

It appears to be looking for the /mnt/cdrom directory. Do an ls /mnt and see if the directory is there. If it isn't, run mkdir /mnt/cdrom. Then try mounting it again.
