Can't I put CD 1 in /dev/scd0 and CD 2 in /dev/scd1 and so on? Server
with more than one CD-rom aren't unusual.
What about if you have 2 CD-roms but 3 CDs are needed. First CD1, then 
CD2, then CD3 and then CD2 again. Does it suggest to echange CD1
against CD3?

Just my 2c (Now we Europeans can say that as well. The Euro is great :)

May the Source be with you.
