You have to mount as root user.

hi.

Actually, you don't need the SU permission to mount, but you will need to add a line in /etc/fstab.

FOR THIS PART YOU NEED ROOT PRIVILEGES
1. create a folder to mount to, for example /mnt/cdrom.
2. open /etc/fstab
3. check, if there already is a line  similar that the one bellow. If not, add it:
  /dev/acd0c /mnt/cdrom cd9660 users,noauto,ro 0 0
  NOTE: replace /dev/acd0c with your CD-ROM device entry in /dev
4. save and exit the editor
5. reboot

OK, you're done vith the root part.

To mount the CD just enter as any user:
mount /mnt/cdrom

regards,
Marko
