AW: /mnt/cdrom or /mnt ?

I agree in that point, that only /mnt shall be used for temporary mounts
(like /mnt/zip, /mnt/cdrom, /mnt/A, etc).
Mounting drives by myself are done with that.

The problem are the distributors.
SuSE's yast par example mounts the cdrom as /cdrom (yes, it's mounted under
/ :-( ).
IMO the FHS should state a clear expression on that issue.
