mount /cdrom; ls -l /cdrom

if it fails, check /etc/fstab if it contains a entry for your
cdrom.

add a line as follows in /etc/fstab:

/dev/sdcd1     /cdrom   iso9660 ro,user 0 0

(please see   man fstab before, specially for what you need to use instead of   /dev/sdcd1 !!)
then  mount /cdrom  should work.

Actually in Red Hat 5.2, /etc/fstab should say:

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

you might want to replace 'noauto,ro' with 'noauto,user,nosuid,nodev,ro' if you want to mount and umount CD-ROM's as a non-root user.

Red Hat 5.2 should set up a symbolic link 'cdrom' to whatever your CD-ROM device you installed Red Hat from.
