Mounting the CD or DVD (Linux)
Depending on your system configuration, you might need to log on as root to mount discs.

Your CD or DVD file system is now mounted. View the contents of the CD or DVD by placing the disc in the drive and enter the cd /cdrom command where cdrom is the mount point directory.
- Insert the CD or DVD in the drive and enter the following command:
mount -t iso9660 -o ro /dev/cdrom /cdrom
where /cdrom represents the mount point of the CD or DVD.
- Log out.
