/dev/cdrom and /dev/dvd in Suse are usually symlinks to other devices. Various releases of Suse that I've used symlinked to /dev/hdc, /dev/hdd (IDE optical drives on the second IDE controller), /dev/st0, and /dev/st1. Try this from a terminal window: /usr/sbin/hwinfo --cdrom. That will probe the hardware and tell you what Suse wants to use for your cd/dvd drive.
If you don't have hwinfo installed, it's probably on the installation media.
Once you know the device Suse wants to use, add something like this to fstab:
/dev/cdrom /media/cdrom subfs noauto,fs=cdfss,rw,procuid,nosuid,nodev,exec,iocharset=utf8 0 0
/dev/dvd /media/dvd subfs noauto,fs=cdfss,ro,procuid,nosuid,nodev,exec,iocharset=utf8 0 0
You will also need to create the mount points in /media.
