choose ur device as cdrom and the mount point u make, be sure that u have that in the path i.e an empty directory at that path where u want to mount

do you post here just to see if people will answer your lame questions?

If root cant access /mnt then you have intentionally changed the permissions or your just a lonely person.

Mandrake never changes that directory permission.

that is true!!!

if u haven't changed the the permisions by urself then as root u can acces anything
mandrake does not do that by itself
