[SLUG] CDROM problems

Does anyone know what the message means "/dev/cdrom is not a valid block
device"? I get this when I try to mount the cdrom - even as root. I have
a known good distro cd in the drive. I looked at fstab and it looks right.

My cd drive appears to load normally at start-up on the hdc device and
is a standard atapi cdrom. The cdrom drive works fine if I boot with a
floppy to dos so the hardware appears to be good. Any ideas?
