If I recall correctly, the few times I have mounted a SunOS 4.1.1 CDROM
under SunOS, it was done using the hsfs file type (High Sierra File
System, also known as the ISO9660 file system in some OSes). For SunOS,
the command was like:

mount -r -t hsfs /dev/sr0 /cdrom

Try using the different file system type specifier and see how it works.
