zenwalk - /etc/fstab

Still working on the drive issue from my earlier post....

I have my cdrom mounted but the /cdrw won't mount.
I get this error message

mount: can't find /mnt/cdrw in /etc/fstab or /etc/mtab

Now here's my question: /etc/fstab doesn't seem to be a file I can what is it?

It's a file. Add something like:

/dev/[your-rw-device] /mnt/cdrw iso9660 noauto,users,owner,ro 0 0

to this file (replacing the [your-rw-device] with the dev node of your cd-rw drive of course). That should do the trick.
