OK, what sort of drive is it? (IDE, SCSI, etc.) Some hints:
1) read /usr/doc/HOWTO/CDROM-HOWTO.gz "zless /usr/doc/HOWTO/CDROM-HOWTO.gz"
2) IDE based drives are usually mounted as an entire drive, Like /dev/hdb or
3) If you have SCSI, look for /dev/sr0 or /dev/sr1
4) Propietary drives, look for devices in the cdrom group.

As to what actual designation is to be given to your CDROM drive, that will
depend on how your hardware is arranged. ok?
