Install a program


How do you read files on a cd, either through terminal or nautilus?

I have Red Hat 9 w/ Gnome desktop.

mount the cd, open up nautilus and jump in the cd directory, or in terminal:

mount /mnt/cdrom (assuming /mnt/cdrom is the mount point..)
cd /mnt/cdrom
ls (list files)
./appname (run appname)

so is it read a file or install a program? do you mean install from the RH CDs? if so, there's a package manager in RH that will make it simple.

if read a file, mount the CD as b0uncer said, then navigate as you would any other directory.
