I sent this question out previously:

       I got a few comments to try mount _cd9660 and
mount -t cd9660.  It gives the same error.

       Does the cd-rom have to be the primary drive on the controller?
How can you tell if it is, and if not, how can I change it?

       I don't think my cdrom drive is being recognized, any idea why not?
