1. Cant'mount my cdroms of floppy

I Just intalled Mandrake 8.1.  What a breeze! However...

I cannot mount my cd-rom, cd burner, or foppy drive.  Very strange, because
I can play my audio cd's with no problem and I can load packets from the
installation disks with no problem.

I am very new to linux.
