Well, when you substitute the letter of your cd-rom drive for the D:, you have to actually substitute it for both D's, and not just the one with the colon after it. That may be why your cd-rom drive isn't mounting. Mine didn't mount until I changed both D's, because I had followed the example and only changed the D:, instead of changing both D's.
Your version of DOSBox may be different than my own - but the way it works for me is... the first drive specification is the "virtual" drive, the second is the "physical" drive.
Like so -
Mount Virtual(X) Physical(D:\ other options)
Some software is kind of finicky about the drive letter specifications for the CD-ROM though - maybe that's what you ran into.
