You sure you have a CD in the drive?  It's been known to happen, speaking from
experience...  or, /dev/cdrom should be a symlink to your scsi cd device.
beowulf[1]~> ls -l /dev/cdrom
lrwxrwxrwx    1 root     root            9 Jul 20  2000 /dev/cdrom -> /dev/scd0

scd0 being the scsi cdrom drive with the lowest ID number.
