Sorry just re-read that and realised how unclear I was.
The machine will call the device something like /dev/hda or /dev/hdb etc.
1. It's common to link a more obvious name to that device eg /dev/dvdrom
although this is purely optional. eg
ln -s /dev/hdb /dev/dvdrom
2. You need a mount point, a directory through which you'll access the
files. Commonly /mnt/dvdrom or /dvdrom
3. In order to just say mount /dvdrom and expect it to be mounted
automatically, add a line in /etc/fstab telling it the device
(/dev/dvdrom), the mount point (/dvdrom), the filesystem (usually auto will
let it autodetect this) and some other options.
/dev/dvdrom /dvdrom auto defaults,ro,user,noauto 0 0
that's a bit more clear, sorry.
