I say thank you to all those who responded to my cdrom question. I found
that most of the responses were similar to the following , which worked

Command to share cdrom: share -F nfs -o ro,anon=0 /cdrom/cdrom0

Command to mount cdrom: mount -o ro server:/cdrom/cdrom0 /cdrom

After changing my mount point in the share command i had no problem
mount the cdrom and seeing all the directory and it's contents.

Again, thank you

Curtis Augustin
