You need to specify which device to use for the virtual CD-ROM using the
"-cdrom" option. It can be a device node (such as /dev/cdroms/cdrom0 or /dev/hda
or similar) or a path to an ISO file (such as ~/ISOs/FC5-x86-installer.iso or
similar).

E.g.:

$ qemu -hda guest.img -cdrom /dev/dvd
$ qemy -hda guest.img -cdrom ~/ISOs/FC5-x86-DVD.iso -boot d

...etc.  Hope that helps!
