How to mount in Run level 3

How would I get a cdrom mounted if I booted to run level 3
I tried this

mk dir -p /mnt/cdrom *it came back with -bash...

I tried to
make dir -p * it gave me errors.

I need to it working...I've got the FX5600 and cant seem to get to a point to run the driver install. If someone can get me there I'd really appriciate it.

Your getting a bash prompt returned or something similiar cause your apparently trying to create a directory without the proper command....


That is the correct command to make a directory.

Then you mount it to an empty directory like this:

mount /dev/hdX /mnt/cdrom

man mount for more details and the manual pages.

Search this forum for many solutions as this is asked all the time.

hmm, first of all what are the errors you get?
second, have you tried using the 'mount' command?
it would look something like this
mount -t iso9660 /dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom

good luck

mount /mnt/cdrom
should do it. I assume /mnt/cdrom is where the cdrom gets mounted normally.
