can not accedd my CDRom
Posted on 2003-03-08
Firstly - I am new to Linux!
I have a CD installed in my drive but when I double click on the “Removable Media” “cdrom” it is showing me nothing? However if I browse to this on the console I can find the cdrom and see some of the contents. The console is telling me that there is a “Mandrake” directory, however when I try to browse into this directory using cd Mandrake the system is telling me “No such file or directory”
I DO NOT HAVE RIGHTS TO MY CD ROM DRIVE.
HOW DO I GIVE MY USER RIGHTS TO THIS DRIVE?
Now to add insult to injury I have just logged into my Linux box as root, and tired to access the cdrom drive and it will also not allow me to do so? Can anybody help me here?
Somebody help - I dont want to give up on Linux so early! I am conflustered!
