mkdir /cdrom

mount -V cdrfs -o ro /dev/cd0  /cdrom

cd /cdrom

ls -l


Or use smitty "crcdrfs". Enter /dev/cd0 at "DEVICE name" and /cdrom at "MOUNT POINT".
Leave "Mount AUTOMATICALLY at system restart?" at "no".
Hit <Enter>

Having used this latter method, issuing "mount /cdrom" will be sufficient for future CD/DVD mounts of /dev/cd0 over /cdrom.
Tip: AIX CDs/DVDs are well readable under Windows - yet not installable  ;-)
