A terminal...

The command "lsmod" will tell you what module is loaded for your system hardware. Look down the list for the module for the CD/DVD.

sr_mod on mine too..

That is the usual module for a CD/DVD. The two drives on my system, one of them a DVD-RW, both connected as PATA, use that module.

sr_mod...

If the question is where can one find this module, the answer is that it is part of the kernel, and should be available as source code from the kernel project. However, it might be among the support resources from Novell that are part of SLES/SLED or openSUSE.
