To mount drive partitions:
su to become root
fdisk -l to identify the partitions---e.g. Windows might be on /dev/hda1
cd /mnt
look for a mount point (directory) with a relevant name--if nothing then make one:
mkdir hda1 can be any name you want
mount /dev/hda1 hda1
cd hda1

The optical drive should automount when you put in a CD or DVD. If not, you may find a mount point already defined in /media

For details on any of these commands: "man <command>"
