Where it is depends on your motherboard and BIOS.   Best thing to do is a
ls of /dev note what devices are there and what each one does (that way you
what to look for when you insert the DVD).   Insert the DVD and then look
at a new copy of the ls and see what has changed and is it one the devices
that corrisbonds to the DVD (on most modern motherboards it would be adaX
or daX)
