Looks very similar to one of the problems I had.  The CDROM driver is a
module, which was not being installed because "install" failed to run
"depmod -a".   Do "depmod -a", and reboot.

"insmod driver" is pretty useless advice, isn't it?  "insmod" is the
command to insert a module.  They are trying to say "insmod <driver>", 
where <driver> stands for the module containing the driver for your 
CDROM drive.
