Run Windows CD-ROMs from Mandrake?


I am new to the Linux world and so far I am happy with the environment, but since I used Windows Millennium (Bug) before I converted I still have a few CD-ROMs I would like to use. I can't start them in the KDE desktop sort of thing so I am wondering if there is a way of using them in this new world. Greatful for reply, Mackan.

you can't "run" the cd's like windows does, as that would require windows to run the application specified in autorun.inf. just mount them in you file manager, desktop icon or such like.
