I erased my /dev/cdrom by mistake and I can't do mkdir to replace it because it must be a block mode file. Do you know how I can remount my CD-ROM? —Yves, email@example.com
/dev/cdrom is usually a symbolic link to one of the disk drives detected at boot. Find the device for the CD-ROM with dmesg | grep CDROM (e.g., mine says hdc: YAMAHA CRW8424E, ATAPI CDROM drive). Then create the link with cd /dev ln -s hdc cdrom. However, if you are using an IDE CD-W, then it will be something like cd /dev ln -s scd0 cdrom rather than hdc. —Keith Trollope, firstname.lastname@example.org
