mount cdrom on vmware
I have a RH linux server installed on vmware , however , it can't mount the cdrom ( by mount /mnt/cdrom or /media/cdrom ) , but the server that installed the vmware can mount the cdrom , can advise how to mount it ? thx

# mount /media/cdrom
mount: can't find /media/cdrom in /etc/fstab or /etc/mtab
# mount /mnt/cdrom
mount: can't find /mnt/cdrom in /etc/fstab or /etc/mtab

Since cdrom is not in fstab you need to mount it explicitly by specifying appropriate device:
(as root)

mount /dev/<devicename> /<mountpoint> (obviously use appropriate options i.e. -t iso9660 -r ).
