mounting cdrom

Hey everyone,
Quick question...I am trying to get packages off a cdrom for NETBSD. I tried mounting using this command mount /dev/rccd0a /etc/home/cdrom. But I just get an error.
I did a dmesg |grep ^cd and it said that my cdrom was at cd0.?

Am I doing something wrong.? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you

Try the following steps:
Do the below as a root!
1.make your current directory anything other than /mnt/cdrom
2.create /mnt/cdrom directory if there isn't one.
3.execute 'mount -t auto /dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom'
4.if it doesn't work try 'mount /dev/cd0 /mnt/cdrom'
5.After finishing your work come out of /mnt/cdrom and execute
'umount /mnt/cdrom'

yes, your cdrom is at cd0 as dmesg has informed you, so you want to mount /dev/cd0
