qemu -cdrom /dev/cdrom linux-0.2.img
i've tried that, and every variation of that i could think of
(/dev/sr0, /dev/scd0).  but, as i said earlier, i don't think the
"-cdrom" option is for assigning devices, i think it's for associating
*image files* with devices.  in any event, the above still doesn't
show me an available CD device from within QEMU.
that should work, read Invocation section carefully:
http://fabrice.bellard.free.fr/qemu/qemu-doc.html#TOC10

when you use -cdrom, the device always becomes /dev/hdc on guest, so
-hdc and -cdrom options are mutually exclusive.

darn, you're right -- but i'm still curious as to how i should have
known that the CD-ROM would be available in the QEMU session as
/dev/hdc.  now that i read the above, you can *deduce* that, but it
certainly doesn't come right out and say it.


that's a very dense doc, I suggest you read it top to bottom and join the bits.
QEMU generally takes time to get familiar with.
