Hi, welcome to LQ.

this directory must exist before you try to mount it
you may need to be root to create it...

mkdir /media/cdrom

like this...

su (enter root password when asked)

mkdir /media/cdrom
to mount the cdrom at /dev/sr0 type in a shell...

mount /dev/sr0 /media/cdrom
On most systems cdrom exists after install.

hope that helps

Regards, Glenn
