I installed the Openstep 4.2 in Vmware6.Now I tried to install some software in it.But when I tried mount /dev/sd0 /mnt/cdrom,it won't work.Please tell me how to mount the CD(IDE 0:1).Thanks.


I guess You are in need of a driver for Your CD Rom (stored on the "additional drivers" floppy or "beta drivers" floppy). Mounting CDs with command line solely won't work, I suppose.



You can also use the 'Disk' menu option in Workspace Manager to check for new disks.

If you managed to get it installed, the CDROM should be recognized..


When I had a CD on my cube it "just worked", and on the intel build of NS it "just worked"...

The only issues I've had, has been media related...

Thanks for the replies.I finally figure out how to do it:I wanted to install some software which needs "root" login;I set up a password and log in as root;then I can install the softwares.Before I thought I should use single user mode(-s option when booting).But until now,I don't know how to mount a CD rom in single user mode.I tried "mount /dev/sd0  /mnt/cdrom" but it didn't work.
