Unix, Xenix and ODT General FAQ
This article is from a FAQ concerning SCO operating
systems. While some of the information may be applicable to any OS,
or any Unix or Linux OS, it may be specific to SCO Xenix, Open
This is an old article about mounting a CDROM in SCO Unix and is only left here for historical purposes.
There is lots of Linux, Mac OS X and general Unix info elsewhere on
this site: Search this site is the best
way to find anything.
Of course you've already run "mkdev cdrom", relinked the kernel
In most cases, you can just do:
mount -r /dev/cd0 /mnt
You may want to add:
mount -o lower -r /dev/cd0 /mnt
To avoid getting everything in UPPER CASE.
If you get "No such device", you have not correctly identified
the device. Try "sconf -v" if it's SCSI; if IDE you are probably
confused as to it being master or slave or whether it's primary or
secondary. DO NOT assume that just because your system installed
from CD that it now has a clue where to look- it does not.
See the other CDROM related entries in this FAQ also.
