Question Photographs vs GRAMPS

I've finally got RH9 loaded and also imported a GEDCOM file so that my genealogy program appears to work. Now I would like to add photos to the genealogy files created. Unfortunately, I do not find a way to get the photographs (.bmp, .tif, etc) onto my RH9 system from a CD-rom burned on Window$, so that I can then add them to my genealogy program. Any suggestions?

What do you get when you mount the CD?
Any errors during mount, if not, what do you
see when you do
ls -l </your/cds/mountpoint>
in a console?

Will try your suggestion when I get home.... I show CD-rom on my desk top (assuming it is Mounted), but how do I get the photos from the disc in the CD-rom to a file on the PC or better yet how to get the photos to the Genealogy porogram....
