Define run for me.

If you simply want to view the contents and what not, you should just be able to mount it locally, then browse it like it's another directory.

If you want to install a Windows program, thats another issue. You will have to look into install WINE or something similar.

If you need a hand with any of the above, just ask

Depends on what cdrom u are talking about. Like Kristijan said, if it's installing some windows application, then it's a different issue as you have to go through a long procedure.

But, if you wanaa watch movies, listen to songs or view pics, all this is easily done.
