   Please give more information.  What instruction, if any, did you give
to mount it?

cd /mnt/cdrom

   Did the mount succeed without complaint?


 Where did you then look for data?

ls and dir

Does fstab have a line in it refering to a cdrom, such as /dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom udf,iso9660 noauto,owner,kudzu,ro 0 0

Yes, /dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom udf,iso9660 noauto,owner,kudzu,ro 0 0

If so, to what does your /dev/cdrom symbolically link?  For example,
ls -l /dev/cdrom might show a line including "/dev/cdrom -> /dev/hdd",

lrwxrwxrwx     1root     root     8 Dec 16 15:04     /dev/cdrom -> /dev /hdc

in which case you might be able to see that it really is a CD by
"cat /proc/ide/hdd/media" showing "cdrom".

cat /proc/ide/hdc/media


I am not going to concern myself with the floppy just yet. I figure I can fix that with the same DISTRUCTIONS as for the CD.

I can put in an audio CD and it will play but I can't see data on the RH9 install CD's.

What am I doing wrong?
