I have a dell precision with ATA DVD and CDRW drives. dmesg reports as
below:

----------------------------

--------------------------------

The problem is /dev/cdrom controls the dvd drive. I don't know what
device note the cdrw was given. How do I found out? Also, then how do
I make /dev/dvdrom map to the dvd player?

I noticed this when attempting to use kscd to play a music cd.. kcsd
is looking at /dev/cdrom.
