lrwxrwxrwx    1 root     root           10 Nov 30 16:29 /dev/dvd ->
/dev/cdrom

i symlikned it to /dev/cdrom.  hm, maybe i shouldn't have ...

orange:~# ll -alF /dev/cdrom
lrwxrwxrwx    1 root     root            4 Apr 21  2001 /dev/cdrom ->
scd1

so, trying to soft-link /dev/dvd to /dev/hdc instead of /dev/cdrom
makes things break even more.  now i'm confuling myself about this ...
