Hi Matt,

after having compiled in iso9660 fs-support into your kernel
you could create the SCSI CD-ROM device yourself like in

    mknod --mode 0666 /dev/sr0 b 11 0
    ln -s /dev/sr0 /dev/cdrom

If you have more than one CD-ROM device, y<ou might consider substituting
the exact path /dev/sr0 with /dev/sr1...etc.

Hope this serves you,
