If your using Gnome

right click on the desktop -> disks -> cdrom (or whatever it's called)
and an icon will probably pop up on your desktop for it

or commandline

mount /mnt/cdrom


cd /mnt/cdrom

Depending on the name given to the drive and whether you have permissions to view blah,blah, though you will as root.

mount /dev/hdX /mnt/cdrom

make sure you replace the X with the correct letter for your cdrom drive (probably c ) and that the directory /mnt/cdrom exists ...

that works for me
