i trust you caught my typo - missing / in
/dev/hdc /mnt/cdrom iso9660 noauto,user 0 0

The error now is:
"Mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/hdc, or too many
mounted file systems."
The cd is an ide/ata type not scsi or usb or sata or 1394 or ?
reboot not needed here, might try auto vice iso9660,(which should change
it looks like you need to: (section 7.c)
and take a hard look at device drivers and file systems
if lspci will run, any thing it has to say about the cd would be useful, it
is part of the package pciutils
