    Cannot mount cdrom

    Hi all ! biggest noob ever so forgive me, have searched everywhere for answer before coming here. I have just installed Knoppix on my hard drive, only problem is I cannot access my cdrom, when I try to mount it, I get error- mount: can't find /dev/hdc in /ect/fstab or /etc/mtab. Any ideas ? plz help.
    Thanks in advance,
    Syamarupa...

    Put the entry in '/etc/fstab'.
    Mine is:
    Code:
    /dev/cdrom      /cdrom          auto            defaults,ro,user,noexec,noauto          0 0
    /dev/cdrom1     /cdrw           auto            defaults,ro,user,noexec,noauto          0 0
    You can notice I've two drives, a 'read-only' one and a 'read&write' one.
    Replace '/dev/cdrom' with '/dev/hdc'. As mount directory put one of your choice (es. /media/cdrom /cdrom etc.).
    A detail that matter:
    Code:
    root@box:/home/max# ll /dev/cdrom /dev/cdrom1
    lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 9 Feb 17 12:12 /dev/cdrom -> /dev/scd0
    lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 9 Feb 17 12:12 /dev/cdrom1 -> /dev/scd1
    root@box:/home/max# ll /dev/scd[01]
    brw-rw---- 1 root cdrom 11, 0 May 31  2001 /dev/scd0
    brw-rw---- 1 root cdrom 11, 1 May 31  2001 /dev/scd1
    You can notice that '/dev/cdroms' are symlinks to '/dev/scd[01]', which are in 'cdrom' group. In case type 'chgrp cdrom /dev/scd[01]'.
