Cannot access the RuInstaller file after installing Oracle 10g

I have a problem when I try to install Oracle 10g on HP-UX. When I've already mounted the CD-DVD unit, it seems that the device cannot access the RuInstaller file.

Hi. I have a problem when I try to install Oracle 10g on HP-UX. When I've already mounted the CD-DVD unit, it seems that the device cannot access the RuInstaller file. However, I can see this file if I write:
$cd cdrom
$ls
DOC            RESPONSE       STAGE
INSTALL        RUNINSTA.;1    WELCOME.HTM;1
After this, I follow the instructions in Oracle's quick reference guide. It says I must enter the follow commands:
$ cd /tmp
$ /cdrom/runInstaller
I've already done it but it shows me the following message:
$ cd /cdrom/runInstaller
/usr/bin/sh: /cdrom/runInstaller:  not found.
Casually I just write only this:
$ /cdrom
and it showed to me this message:
/usr/bin/sh: /cdrom: Execute permission denied.
As you can see, Ms. Anderson, I'm novel in this issue. Maybe it is just a little detail but I could not resolve this. I'll appreciate your help.
There seem to be a number of issues here. One is that the runInstaller executable cannot be found in /cdrom, at least according to the output from your 'ls' command. Second, it also appears that there is an operating system permissions issue with /cdrom if you cannot 'cd' to it. Did the media (CD or DVD) that you are attempting to install from come from Oracle or was it created by copying a downloaded version of Oracle software? If it was copied from previously downloaded software, this may explain the permissions issue. It would be a good idea to download the Oracle software directly from Oracle's Technology Network Web site and unzip it to a staging area on the server as per the instructions. If you follow the instructions, it will set up the permissions appropriately so that the software can be installed.

system.
