Edit the file /etc/modules and put in a line with the word 'isofs'
to cause the modules which supports the CDROM filesystem to be loaded.
You'll also need the module which supports the CDROM physical device
as well. If you use and ATAPI (IDE) CDROM this device is probably
already loaded. I honestly don't know what the module name is because
I have it compiled into my kernel. Maybe someone else knows.
