Hi teera,
What version of Linux are you using?

On Redhat you would mormally type 'mount /mnt/cdrom' as the /etc/fstab file would have been configured when you installed the system.
SuSe stores the mount points in a different directory. You would type 'mount /media/cdrom'.
On some systems there is 'automount' running which automatically mounts the cdrom when you put it in the drive.

Granular recovery for Microsoft Exchange

With Veeam Explorer for Microsoft Exchange you can choose the Exchange Servers and restore points you’re interested in, and Veeam Explorer will present the contents of those mailbox stores for browsing, searching and exporting.

I don't know about Mandrake. Can you post the contents of the file /etc/fstab

Mandrake has automount too. You should have a shortcut to the cdrom on the desktop. Right-click it for more options.

command is: mount /dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom which is done using the root account

or if not you could try

mount /dev/hdb /mnt/cdrom
where /dev/hdb means primary slave if your cdrom is secondary master it should be /dev/hdc and finally if your cdrom is secondary slave it should be /dev/hdd
and the /mnt/cdrom directory of course should exist

you should mount devices as root
