>First you need to check your /etc/fstab and look for a line something like
/dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom iso9660 noauto,user,ro 0 0
It might begin with something like "/dev/hdc" but the default RH6.2 installation
is to /dev/cdrom which is a symlink to the actual device.
Next you need to do a
from a console with a cd in the drive which should mount the CDROM. As for
having an icon on the desktop, that depends on your window manager and, as I
don't use such things, I'm not sure how that's done.
