Does anyone know what I'm doing wrong. I can;t seem to mount my cdrom
after a new Linux 6.0 install. It shows I have it in 'etc'fstab  as shown below.

/dev/cdrom     /mnt/cdrom            iso9660 noauto,ro         0 0

And I have it as a directory under '/mnt'
And I don't know the syntax to create a symbloic link or what to link it to if linking 
was my problem.

I try 'mount /mnt/cdrom'
I try 'mount /mnt/cdrom /dev/cdrom'

Everything I try I get 'not a valid block device'

Thanks ahead for any help,

Dave Willcox :-)
