I'm still having a hard time mounting my ATAPI CD ROM
I created a directory cdfrank
I changed to cdfrank
I ran the mount command as such
mount -t /dev/cdrom iso9660 ro,user,noauto,unhide,exec 00
I got instead the mount help file. It didn't work.
I also tried
mount -t /dev/cdrom iso9660 ro,user,noauto,unhide,exec 00 /cdfrank
