Cannot mount CD-rom on ZipSlack

For some reasons I decided to give ZipSlack a go on my machine. It boots just fine, I got my network and sound card working, but when I try to mount the CD rom it fails saying "Cannot mount /dev/cdrom: block device unknown". OK, i try next "insmod isofs" and it gives me "Device or resource busy".

Can someone help me?

Try to mount another device file as cdrom, eg

mount /dev/hdc /mnt/cdrom
mount /dev/sda1 /mnt/cdrom
