That depends where the CD is mounted. If you mount the CD under
"/mnt/cdrom" the prefix would of course be "/mnt/cdrom". But in Unix you
can pretty much mount any filesystem wherever you want, including CDs.
I usually use the automounter, which as supplied with RedHat is configured
by default to automount CDs under "/misc/cd". On Katherine's machine I
have also made softlinks to directories named for the DOS "drive letters"
so that she can access the floppy as "/A" and the CD-ROM as "/E".
Hope that helps,
