Re: cdrom

Hi Jens:

In addition to not having the device files in /dev, I had the problem of
not having support for the CD Rom devices in the kernel. My kernel had 
the decency to suggest insmod.

Use insmod to insert these. If there is a driver there, insmod will

At least it worked for me. Lot's of luck.
