Never tried it that way. I have a directory called /cdrom and all I do
is "mount /cdrom". You can't mount audio cds. You simply play them.
Some of the ports tell you to link /dev/acd0c to /dev/cdrom and chmod it
to something like 744. I use xmcd or kscd to play my audiio cds but
usually configure them to use acd0c.
