Bug copying files from CD

first u have to create a directory called cdrom, if it is not present, then mount the cd on to the cdrom directory and then u can use the normal copy command for copying the files from the cd.

1) login as root
2) # mkdir cdrom <Press Enter>
3) chmod 777 /cdrom - Giving the read,write,executable permission to the cdrom directory
4) # mount /dev/cd0 /cdrom - This will mount the cd-drive on to the cdrom directory.
5) # cp file name to the directory u want to copy.
where cp - stands for copy
