Where did my CD-ROM drive disappear to

Running "sarge" with kernel-2.6.9-2.
The bootlog (dmesg) shows lines ::

/dev/ide/host0/bus0/target0/lun0: p1 p2 < p5 p6 p7 p8 > p3
hdb: max request size: 128KiB
Probing IDE interface ide1...
hdc: 56X CD-ROM, ATAPI CD/DVD-ROM drive
hdd: ST38421A, ATA DISK drive
ide1 at 0x170-0x177,0x376 on irq 15

But /dev/cdrom, or /cdrom, or the seemingly-logical /dev/ide/bus0/target1/... construction exist. I cannot locate my cdrom drive at all.

Could someone please offer a clue?
