I recently interchanged the ide cables leading to the hd and dvd drive. I booted with the cables in the wrong slots and later realized that they should be switched around.
Now, my ide hd (hda1) mounts but my dvd drive (formerly hdc), doesn't. How do I manually set the mount point for my dvd drive back to /dev/hdc; its default mount point.
$cat /var/log/messages grep hdc (incorrect, now fixed)
Dec 30 01:38:24 agent kernel: hdc: QUANTUM FIREBALLlct15 30, ATA DISK drive

When the mount point for the dvd drive was hda, the boot output looked as it should...
Dec 30 01:38:24 agent kernel: hda: HL-DT-ST DVDRAM GSA-4163B, ATAPI CD/DVD-ROM drive

Dec 30 01:38:24 agent kernel: hda: ATAPI 63X DVD-ROM DVD-R-RAM CD-R/RW drive, 2048kB Cache, UDMA(33)
Now, it can't spec it or anything. It knows something's there, but that's it.

I apologize if the explanation is confusing. I tried to make it as clear as possible.
I hope the solution isn't blatantly obvious. It certainly isn't to me.
