http://unix.stackexchange.com – It's a long story of why I am trying to do this (basically supporting a business that has not updated their servers in a LONG time). In any case, I am trying to mount an ISO in VMWare View player so I can get access to it inside a snapshot of Yarrow. (I am using VMWare View Player 5.) When I "Connect" to the ISO, it does see the drive - it even recognizes the name of the image (FC-1 i386). However, when I try to navigate to /mnt/cdrom and perform 'ls', nothing is listed. The application installer keeps asking me for the CD. Here is my /etc/fstab: /dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom udf,iso9660 noauto, (HowTos)
