/dev/cdrom link not set up correctly for ide-cdrw drive

Description of problem:
I presume this is a kudzu issue, not really sure.
After installing Severn I was unable to mount the cdrom. I have an IDE CD-RW
drive attached to /dev/hdc, the install set this up using the ide-scsi driver
and pointed the /dev/cdrom link to /dev/hdc. Changing /dev/cdrom to point
to /dev/scd0 allows me to mount the cdrom correctly.
I noticed that someone on the rhl-beta-list has experienced a similar problem.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install Severn
2. Try to mount /mnt/cdrom
Actual Results: fs would not mount
Expected Results: fs should mount
[root@leo root]# mount /mnt/cdrom
mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/cdrom,
or too many mounted file systems
(could this be the IDE device where you in fact use
ide-scsi so that sr0 or sda or so is needed?)
Please post the output of 'kudzu -p'; thanks!

Something that might help.
I re-installed the system a few days ago picking the server class install and
the /dev/cdrom link is set up correctly. I re-installed today picking a
workstation install (just to test this issue) and /dev/cdrom is set up
incorrectly. Did another server install and /dev/cdrom is set up correctly.
"me too". Strangely I've never seen this until the Cambridge alpha and beta
releases. RH9 and earlier were fine on my laptop.
Warren: it does the same for you vis-a-vis server/workstation installs?
Are you booting with rhgb?
I have the same problem: Before FC test releases (up to RH 9
updated), I never new about scd0. Oh, wrong, when I compiled any
vanilla kernel, I did pointed cdrom to scd0, but Red Hat kernels
always liked hdc itself. But with FC tests it's always scd0, but it
was originally pointing to hdc for me too.
Closing bugs on older, no longer supported, releases. Apologies for any lack of
With 2.6, ide-scsi is no longer needed, and this should be all cleared up.
