    mount /cdrom

first.  "noauto" in /etc/fstab means that the OS won't try and mount this
automatically at startup.

If you want things like "cd /cdrom" to automatically mount the CD first
then you need to explore things like amd(8).

Internet connection, $19.95 a month.  Computer, $799.95.  Modem, $149.95.
Telephone line, $24.95 a month.  Software, free.  USENET transmission,
hundreds if not thousands of dollars.  Thinking before posting, priceless.
