This is an unsual puzzle for me. Using  Enterprise v3.5 I'm unable to automount a CD.  Tried the following and it worked at first but upon reboot using the same commands as before (listed below) now return the error, mount: you must specify the file type system. CD Properties dialog has 'Mount when CD inserted' selected. Thanks in advance for any suggestions?

ls -s /dev/scd0 cdrom
mount /dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom

 ---------------------------------------------------------------------------
Here is the fstab information.

/dev/md0                /                       ext3    defaults        1 1
LABEL=/boot             /boot                   ext3    defaults        1 2
none                    /dev/pts                devpts  gid=5,mode=620  0 0
none                    /proc                   proc    defaults        0 0
none                    /dev/shm                tmpfs   defaults        0 0
/dev/sda5               swap                    swap    defaults        0 0
/dev/fd0                /mnt/floppy             auto    noauto,owner,kudzu 0 0

Why will not You try
mount /dev/scd0 /mnt/cdrom # what's happens now?

Do You execute the "ls -s /dev/scd0 cdrom" in /dev directory? Also, it should real like: ls -sf /dev/scd0 /dev/cdrom
