cd rom can't be mounted


Hello friends!!

Am newer on puppy, and i reach to install it! but my cd rom unit can't be mounted. i can see it inside the drives icon, but i can't get it works!
i have a printer problem too, the model is CAnon bjc 240, and the problem is that it prints in codes, or text format, not as i see on abi word %^^U**&^*(UJ**UU@^RYJI%*(**(*)U^UH (something like that) which could be the problem.

i wait for your answers.

Your post is some what confusing. From what I understand, you have a Puppy linux CD, and want to install Puppy to your hard drive. You say you can not mount it.

To mount a CDrom, floppy or any hard drive, you need a linux system booted. Then mouniting is possible.

Have you got a linux system installed, and can you bbot it?

If you want to boot Puppy form the CD, you don't mount it first. You go into the BIOS on your system and set the CDRom as the first boot device. Put the CD in the drive, and power up. Then the system can boot from the CD.

As for yor printer problem, we can take a look after we sort out the first problem.

Please clarify the above, and we'll go from there.

Yes I understand now.

To mount a CD, it has to be a data CD. You can not mount music CD's.

What type of CDrom id it? Make model etc. Is it installed on the IDE bus or is it a SCSI device?

type following to find the cdrom

dmesg |grep CD

then type mount command

mount /dev/hdc /mnt (or any other subfolder)

replace hdc with the device name found in your system
