Yes. is y our CDROM drive REALLY hda? I'd guess not. hda is the first
master drive on the first IDE chain, usually it's your bootable hard
drive.

Once you figure out where it actually is, change the link (/dev/cdrom)
to point to where it really is. E.g., if it's on hdc, do this (as root):

	cd /dev
	rm cdrom
	ln -s hdc cdrom

and if it is properly defined in /etc/fstab, you can mount it like this:

	mount /mnt/cdrom

rather than trying to mount /dev/cdrom as you show above.
