Floppy and dvd drive not found in centos
 
I recently installed centos on a 600 mhz laptop. I set it up so i can play dvds and watch movies. WIth my luck i set it all up and VOILA, it can't detect the dvd or floppy drives in the laptop. However the floppy and dvd drives are in the dock to the laptop, but the power cord connects and powers the laptop through there. How can i scan for new hardware or such? The laptop is a Sony Vaio pcg-r505tek, 600mhz pentium 3 laptop. Thanx ahead of time :)

p.s. - im basically a noob exploring linux at this point in time.
