My IDE CDROM died - so I replaced it with a SCSI CDROM. The SCSI card was detected, the SCSI scanner I hooked up works, but the CDROM won't show up a /dev/cdrom. So anything that uses the CDROM, like the CD player, etc, doesn't work anymore. symlinks in the /dev/ directory don't survive a reboot. I could put it in /etc/rc.d/rc.local but that seems like a hack.

If I'm not mistaken - udev is supposed to handle the setup, but I'm not sure where to set this up. I've never had trouble with the setup when I do a fresh install, but I was hoping that could be a last resort. Anyone familiar with udev, please give me a pointer. Thanks.



The SCSI CDROM is here:
