udev dinamically creates the devices at boot time. you need a udev rule to make it create a symlink for your dvd drive.
Create a 20-custom.rules file with a text editor, and add a line
Place the file in /etc/udev.d/rules
As root, run udevstart: you will find your simlynk in the /dev directory and from now on it will always be there.
I'm not exactly sure about the syntax of the rule file, so check the existing files, the manual page and the doc of udev. Also, if your drive is not "hdc", remember to use the proper device.
