These might be silly questions, but

The cdrom is configured and available?.
lsdev -Cc cdrom

If its not there run config manager

Is the filesystem there for the cdrom?
lsfs /dev/cd0

if its not there create one using;
smitty crcdrfs

When you install programs, there are different ways to go about it:

1) Install using RPMs, which will automate the process almost completely.

2) Get the source code, compile it, and run it.

For mounting a device like a cdrom the syntax should be something similar to the following:

mount -t mounttype /dev/cdrom /somemountpoint

Hope this helps

well lets focus on the important parts.

A) if you can NOT become root you CAN NOT mount.
man mount.....
Only users with root authority or are members of the system group and have write
access to the mount point can issue file or directory mounts.

your best bet to installing a program with non root uid would be

1) download the src
2) untar/gunzip/uncompress it to your home dir
3) edit the makefile
4) compile it and then run it as you.
