Question My cdrom doesn't work...

I've just installed Slackware 9, everything works except my cdrom. When I type 'mount cdrom' I get the error can't find cdrom in /etc/fstab or /etc/mtab. But when I look in fstab i see the line -> /dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom iso9660 noauto,ro 0 0
And the folder /mnt/cdrom exists, and I'm logged in as root...
Someone that has a solution for me?

You'll need to type one of:
mount /mnt/cdrom
mount /dev/cdrom
mount /dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom
