[Wolves] Morphix/Debian and CD drives

Howdy all,

After a brief, and misguided, dalliance with Fedora over the weekend, I 
reinstalled Morphix Gnome, then did a dist-upgrade to Sid, yesterday.

It doesn't seem to have recognised my IDE CD drives, this time round, 
tho'. I have a CD-RW and a DVD-ROM drive, both of which seemed to work 
fine when I installed Morphix KDE, previously.

My first question is to do with the dev name that these drives are 
assigned. At the moment, I can't find out what Debian is calling them. 
So, what's the difference between /dev/hdc and /dev/cdrom?

I've added a couple of lines to the fstab, which reference /dev/hdc and 
/dev/hdd as iso9660 noauto, ro, users 0 0 (I *think*, don't have details 

Any thoughts peeps?
