Try
Code:
dmesg | less
You also may want to look
at
/proc/scsi/scsi
to see what has actually been
picked up by the driver,
and the entries in
/proc/ide
to see what is what...

Cheers,
Tink

for the first part, I get command not found.

for /proc/scsi/scsi I get:

Attached devices:
Host: scsi0 Channel: 00 Id: 00 Lun: 00
Vendor: PHILIPS Model: CDD4851 CD-R/RW Rev: C2.8
Type: CD-ROM ANSI SCSI revision: 02

for /proc/ide I have:

hda, hdc, hdd
, ide0, ide1, drivers, piix


Fromt his I figure that the computer sees my CDRW, it just wont mount it.

Try the dmesg as root (it should work
for normal users, too, though)?

Also an lsmod would be interesting.

Weird ... looks all good to me,
and makes sense in respect to the
output of lsmod and your fstab...

Sometimes writers are picked up as
/dev/sr0, though, maybe you want to
try a
mount -t iso9660 /dev/sr0 /mnt/cdrw
and see whether it mounts a cd, and
if so, modify your fstab accordingly.

You should install util-linux, dmesg is
quite a good tool for diagnosing your
box if something fails .... :}

Cheers,
Tink
