You should also check to see if your cd is being recognized by your
system. I was getting a similar error message even though things were
properly configured in fstab. When I'd go to mount the cd I'd get the
same error mesage. All I had to do was specify the ide device on the
kernel command line by adding hdx = cdrom.
Since it says hdd, I'm assuming your cdrom is installed as the slave
device on the secondary ide port. If this is the case, then you can
fix things by adding an append command to your lilo config that
specifies your cdrom as being hdd. Try adding hdd = cdrom.
