Mount VBoxGuestAddition from command line in Centos

Have installed a Centos 5 in VBox I took a while to find this comnmand to mount the VBoxGuestadditions iso file

mount /dev/cdrom-hdc /media

I needed this even though I had attached the drive in the VBox tool bar.

Just to save others some time maybe.

This is because automount is off what if I remember correctly is default behaviour for CentOS. I have never configured CentOS for automount but I know it can be done...
