You are refering (I assume) to partitons as dictated by a partition
table in the first block in the data track.

I've got a cdrom that has 12 music tracks followed by a HFS data track
and then an ISO 9660 data track. This disk works wonderfully with W95
and with MacOS, but Linux chokes trying to mount the first music track.

To say the least, I'd like a way to access data tracks other than the
first track on a cd...

I was amused to notice that when I put a music cd in an SGI, it
automounted it, and made a directory containing all the music tracks...
I can immagine what it might do with this mixed cd, but I haven't trid it.
(Maybe I will tomorrow.)
