Wow. You sure tried a lot of stuff. I bet that the errer message that you
got gave you a clue about what was wrong. It would probabsy help us to
answer you.

But I am pretty sure I can help anyway. The proper device name for your
atapi cdrom is most likely /dev/wcd0c.

mount -t cd9660 /dev/wcd0c /cdrom

Also, the mount /cdrom incantation will work if /cdrom is in /etc/fstab.

Thank You, 	|
