the CD ROM Howto which I presume you've studied.
Try deja news then post a query to a newsgroup then if that fails come
back and ask here.
If I'm not mistaken you are asking how to edit /ect/fstab ? Or trying get
mount command to work or am I completely wrong ?
- It is not about mounting the device. I see it in /etc/fstab files. I think
it may be a hardware problem
For example, I just turned my notebook on and it seems to recognize the
cdrom. I see in the bootup message dmesg.

- I am having this exact same problem, on a Dell Latitude CPt. I
am running RH 6.1 (Cartman). I did not see a resolution to this
issue... anyone else figure this out?
