Hi i have REdhat 9.0 with the lilo loader.

I have to setup my system so it automatically mounts my CD-ROM every time that I start up my system. I want to mount  my CD-ROM into /mnt/test directory. But i have to make sure that the filesystem for the CD-ROM is iso9660.

thanks

i appreciate your help.

thanks again

new to linux so please give a little clear instructions.

You have to edit the /etc/fstab file

specifically you have to add/modify the line containing cdtom




/dev/hdc      /mnt/test         iso9660        noauto,ro,user       0       0

you just change the /mnt/cdrom to  /mnt/test since you said

>>I want to mount  my CD-ROM into /mnt/test directory.

other than that there should not be any changes. But if you are paranoid just take a backup of the file ( and also take a second opinion cos I myself have never had to change that file )
