Be aware that this will only work if your distro of Linux has set 
up a mount point of /mnt/cdrom in /etc/fstab. Some distros do not 
have the cdrom in /etc/fstab or use a different mount point for the 
cdrom. The full way to mount a CD is as follows:

    mount <device> <directory>

Most (all?) Linux distros have /dev/cdrom as the CD device. The directory 
you mount can change. In RedHat, it is usually /mnt/cdrom. In Slackware,
it can be either /cdrom or /mnt. So on a RedHat distro the full 
mount command is:

    mount /dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom
