Once you boot cdrom -s and get to the # prompt, you should be able to do a ls -F (ls is the UNIX command to list files (like DIR in DOS))

To change directory the command is cd. cd to / to insure you are at the top level.
# cd /

Then follow the instructions on mounting the boot device to /a (link was given in earlier response).
