Hi Rasica,
I think your CDROM drive may have some problem. If you are on SCO Unixware 7.1 loaded and the CDROM device is installed properly, then you need to use the following syntax to mount the CDROM.

$ mount -F cdfs -oro /dev/cdrom/cdrom_device_name /cdrom_mount_point

The actual syntax is:

$ mount -F cdfs -oro "cdrom_device_name" "cdrom_mount_point"

For example: If I have to mount the cdrom at the mount point /mnt/cdrom and my cdrom device name is c0b2t0l0 and the device is installed in /dev/cdrom directory then my command line should be:

$ mount -F cdfs -oro /dev/cdrom/c0b2t0l0 /mnt/cdrom.

The above error comes if your CDROM drive is not installed properly or if you are not mentioning a proper CDROM device name or if you the mount point directory structure is not perfect.

To find the name of the CDROM device you can follow the following steps:

$ cd /dev/cdrom
$ ls
This displays your CDROM device name.

Hope this helps you. For any further query, mail me.

With regards,
Abhirup Haldar.
