How is the cdrom you are trying to use attached to the
system? Is it an IDE ATAPI CDROM or is it scsi?
If it is scsi, you may need to use a different device
name such as /dev/scd0c. (I am assuming this
is where scsi cdroms are at, but I dont have scsi on my box).

Also, in the /dev dir if you do 'ls -l cdrom' you will see that it
is a symlink to the real device. On my box I get:
bash-2.05$ ls -l cdrom
lrwxr-xr-x  1 root  wheel  11 Jul  2  2002 cdrom -> /dev/racd0c
