This identifies the CDROM as device 0,0,0 on the scsi devices.

However, that is not used for mounting the cdrom filesystem but is used
for burning cds.

mounting a cdrom filesystem should be done by a command such as "mount
/dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom"


Have you changed anything since installing Linux?  What version are you
running (FC1 or FC2)?  This will affect how you access the cdrom.

For example, when I install Linux the system defines the CDROM as
/dev/cdrom (the physical device is /dev/hdd) and the only module loaded
is ide-cd for it.  If you changed the module loaded (added ide-scsi for
example) it will change the device used for mounting and  for
accessing.  It also disrupts automount and other functions.

FC1 and FC2 are different in the way they handle CD burning.  FC1 still
used ide-scsi, but FC2 does not (the change from the 2.4 kernel to the
2.6 kernel was the cause).
