Watch Question

Simply do the following after you have booted in Linux:
#] cd /
#] mkdir cdrom
(take a look at the appropriate hd that coresponds to your cd , you can see that while the Kernel boots e.g
hdd IDE ATAPI CDROM HITACHI)
#] mount /dev/hdd /cdrom
and you are ready...

It did not work kernel see cd-rom as tape drive
You don't ACTUALLY say "hdx=cdrom", you use the correct name for your CD-ROM drive, for example hdb, hdc, or hdd.
