SUMMARY: CD won't mount on Solaris 9

The solution was to

# /etc/init.d/volmgt stop

# mount -F hsfs -o ro /dev/dsk/c0t6d0s0 /mnt1

Below is my original question

I have a 280R with Solaris 9 with an internal CD rom drive.
When I push the  button to the drive the drawer opens as normal.
When I put a cd in the tray and close the door the cd never
mounts under /cdrom.

vold is running

# ps -ef |grep vold
      root   240     1  0   Dec 01 ?        0:00 /usr/sbin/vold

I seem to recall there was a patch that fixed this particular problem.

Any help would be appreciated.

# cat /etc/release
