Talking DeLiLinux mount problems

I am not able to mount my cdrom or anything else for that matter. Here is the error I get.

I am green
system is red

root@delilinux:/# mount /mnt/cdrom
mount: can't find /mnt/cdrom /ect/fstab or /ect/mtab

My cdrom is hde .

so I try

root@delilinux:/# mount /dev/hde
mount: can't find /dev/hde /ect/fstab or /ect/mtab

Can anyone help me?

You are missing the cdrom line. Try adding:

/dev/hde /mnt/cdrom udf,iso9660 user,noauto,owner,ro,nosuid,nodev 0 0

As root, do cat /etc/fstab and show us the output. Also make sure to create the mnt cdrom directory.
