you can't type mount /dev/cdrom, cause it's not a driver. On boot up it should say what driver to use. It should look somthing like hda1 or something like that. Then you can do mkdir cdrom, then mount /dev/hxxx /cdrom.

If you root try : mount /dev/cdrom /mnt
If your are not root edit the fstab file in /etc and include
mount /dev/cdrom /mnt 0 users
the "users" will permit other than root to mount. You also have to chmod u+s /bin/mount and /bin/umount


Make sure that the file /dev/cdrom point on the good device.
try :
mount /dev/hda /mnt ( primary master)
mount /dev/hdd /mnt ( primary slace)
mount /dev/hdc /mnt ( second master)
mount /dev/hdd /mnt (second slave)

hope this help
