A Windows install CD of any version I can think of should mount just fine 
as an iso9660 data cd. This is a valid test, unless M$ is doing something 
funky to their CDs that I don't know about. Is this CD usuable in other 
operatings systems and/or on other hardware? I think the original poster 
is just tripping over mount(8) liek we all do the first time around .. :)

If it still doesn't work post your dmesg output so we can see what type of 
CD player you have.
