cdrom and cdrom1 dev files

I deleted my cdrom and cdrom2 dev file by accident and I need replacements, I'm running Fedora 2 on a 2.6 kernel, do I just need to reinstall the kernel source code or what?

The /dev/cdrom is just a link to the actual device. Assuming IDE drives you need to know which CDROM is connected to which IDE controller and its master, slave configuration.

ln -s /dev/hdc /dev/cdrom (change /dev/hdc to match the location of the drive)

RH uses kudzu to autodetect new hardware. It will probably recreate the links with a reboot. kudzu's database file is /etc/sysconfig/hwconf. You can delete the approiate hardware listing in the database and kudzu will then detect new hardware. See man pages for kudzu for additional info.
