well i get permission denied. I cant paste the output here, because im at
work. tomorrow I will post up the exact output. I will check all my
permissions etc to make sure im not being dumb first.
version is 5.2-release
dir trying to mount is /home/edd/cdrom1
/dev/acd0 is chmod 777 (for testing purposes)
Will get back to you tomorrow lowell.
