Debian cannot find the CD drive (though Windows 98 can) so I have used the vi editor to change the file system table. Unfortunately, the CD is still not being found by Debian.
I have changed the line in /etc/fstab
/dev/cdrom /cdrom iso9660 defaults,noauto 0 0
/dev/cdrom /cdrom iso9660 defaults,noauto,users 0 0
After restarting the computer, putting a cd in its drive and double clicking on the cd icon, I get the message:
"mount: special device /dev/cdrom does not exist"
If anyone can see what I might be doing wrong then please let me know.
