View Full Version : After a clean install the CD is no longer accessable

01-29-2005, 08:11 AM
I receive the following error when selecting the CD:

"Unable to run the command specified.
he file or folder file:/mnt/cdrom does not exist."

How can I get to the file if I can't open the cd? or did the install copy it to the local HDD? during the install?


ps. This is my very first attempt at using anything Linux.... Thanks to the forums I learned enough to get the system partitioned, OS installed and now... this is where I am at.

Thanks again!

What file are you talking about? To access the CD:
#mkdir /mnt/cdrom
#mount -t iso9660 /dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom
#cd /mnt/cdrom
#ls -a
And now you should get a screen with the contents of your CD (of course, the CD must be in the drive).

edit: you don't have to type the # character. It's short for the prompt of your console root. It should look something like:
