    Default Mounting a CD-Rom Why can't I tell which HDA is used?

    FSTAB is supposed to tell me which hard drive partitions are used up.
    I'm running Yellow Dog on a Mac Power PC.
    I'd like to mount the CD ROM by using the mount /dev/cdrom command.
    However I'm getting nowhere.
    Am I supposed to mount this CD ROM to a partitition? My boot up is hda9
    Can I take one that's unassigned, let's say hda4?

    Thanks

    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

    What gives?

    /etc/fstab is supposed to tell the mount(8) command which filesystems are to be
    mounted to which mountpoints. While you can also use it to determine which hard
    drive partitions are "used up", it's not /intended/ for your use.
     

    How so? What seems to be the problem? What are you doing, and what do you expect
    to happen? What happens?
     

    No, you're supposed to mount this device (/dev/cdrom) to a mountpoint. A
    "mountpoint" is just another way of saying "a directory that you want to replace
    with the contents of the mounted filesystem".
     

    Nope. Don't even /think/ of these. They have nothing to do with mounting your
    cdrom, and thinking of your hard disk partitions in this case will just confuse you.

    Here's what you want to do:

    - find an appropriate (preferably empty) directory that you'd want to see the
    cdrom contents under. If you don't have such a directory, create it. For
    example, on my system, I've got an empty directory called /mnt/cdrom that I
    use for accessing the cdrom with. This is it's "mount point".

    rootbitsie:~# ls -l /mnt/cdrom
    total 0

    rootbitsie:~# ls -ld /mnt/cdrom
    drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 1024 Mar 16 2002 /mnt/cdrom/

    - Tell the system to connect the cdrom to the directory selected above.

    rootbitsie:~# mount -r -t iso9660 /dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom

    - Access your cdrom /through/ the mountpoint directory

    I'm not positive if you can mount if the mount point is busy.
     

    su -c "mount -t iso9660 -o ro,user,noauto,unhide,exec /dev/cdrom /cdfrank"

    Are you trying to mount a type "dev/cdrom", or a type iso9660?
    Should be -t iso9660

    It's still not working. What am I doing wrong? Do I have the right device iso9660 or is it
    something else? I think it's an ATAPI CD ROM that originally came with the Power Mac G3
    Sorry to sound so stupid but I've tried all the suggestions.
    BTW, on the Apple Os 9 boot the cD works fine...

    So I take it that I replace iso9660 in the command line with HFS, correct?

    Spell out the syntax for me if I'm not onto this...
