FBSD comes with one CDROM drive preconfigured in /etc/fstab. You only mount data CDROMs, music CDs are mounted by the music playing software you use, as does the software you use to write CDs.
Load a standard cd9660 (Rock Ridge Extensions) CD in the drive.
mount /cdrom # mount device to mount point /cdrom
cd /cdrom # change to directory
ls # list content of CDROM disk
cd / # leave directory
umount /cdrom # to dismount a CDROM disk from the drive
If you have two CDROM drives you can add the shortcut mount command for it.
Edit /etc/fstab and add the following statement:
/dev/acd1c /cdrom2 cd9660 ro,noauto 0 0
Then create its mount point:
Reboot the system to enable your change.
