Most of fluxbox menu disappearing when mounting a CD?

So I did some searching around, and decided to go with mounting by typing this in the shell:

mount -t iso9660 /dev/cdrom /(directory)

The cdrom seems to mount successfully, but then just about everything in the fluxbox menu disappears. Any suggestions from here?


P.S.How do I create a directory?

Which fluxbox menu disappears, or what sections of it disappear? Your mount command looks fine, but directory are you actually mounting it to? Usually it would be /media/cdrom or /mnt/cdrom

As for creating a directory, is simply:
mkdir dirname
assuming you have privileges to do so in the directory you are currently in.
