STEP Tools CDs use an ISO 9660 filesystem, possibly with Rock Ridge extensions. The procedure for mounting CD-ROMs varies, so we have included instructions for some common platforms:
Simply insert the disk. On most modern Linux distros, it will be automatically mounted under /mnt/cdrom. If you have a different setup, you may need to manually mount the disk using a command like the following.
% mount -r -t iso9660 /dev/hdc /cdrom # IDE CD % mount -r -t iso9660 /dev/scd0 /cdrom # SCSI CD % umount /cdrom # to unmount the disk
Using the sam system administration tool, invoke sam as root, navigate to Disk and File Systems, and then to File Systems. Under Actions | Add Local File System | Not Using The Logical Volume Manager , you will find a dialog box that mounts a CD as a one-time event.
If you know the device name, you can also mount the disk manually using:
% mount -r -F cdfs /dev/dsk/c1t2d0 /cdrom % umount /cdrom
Where c1t2d0 is the actual device name of the CD-ROM drive.
Simply insert the disk. The system will automatically mount the disk as /CDROM . To unmount and eject the disk:
% eject /CDROM # to unmount the disk
Simply insert the disk. The volume manager will automatically mount it under the /cdrom directory as:
/cdrom/<volumename> (such as /cdrom/cdrom0)
To unmount and eject the disk:
% eject cd
