I created 2 virtual machines with VMware Workstation 7. They have identical hardwares. One guest is CentOS 5.6, another is Mandriva 2011. When I try to mount the cdrom in guest OS, in CentOS, I should execute
mount /dev/hdc /path/to/mount
in Mandriva, I should execute
mount /dev/sr0 /path/to/mount
I also remebered in some other Linux variant, I had to use
mount /dev/cdrom /path/to/mount
My questions are:
- What's the difference between hdc, sr0 or cdrom?
- Is there a consistent way to mount cdrom in all Linux variants?
