RHEL5 will probably handle the CD-ROM by itself, so all you need to do is open up a console and

mount /mnt/cdrom

If this succeeds, it will return quietly, and when you go to /mnt/cdrom you will see your files there.
If it fails it will throw an error, depending on what it is you may be able to get it to work with

sudo mount /dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom

Where sudo will make sure you run the command as root.
You will really need a linux primer if you intend to use it, i can recommend
