Just to make this totally clear (the other posts didn't explicitly say
this): you need to mount something on an empty directory[*], and that
directory needs to exist first. On debian, this directory is actually
just /cdrom. A good place to check for the standard mount points for
your distro is the /etc/fstab file.
[*] Wacky kernel 2.4 stuff notwithstanding (I think you can mount
several things on the same mount point with it).
