Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

link it to /dev/cdrom and reference THAT in the fstab. Make sure it is a SYMBOLIC link (ln -s, the -s is important) And check again to make sure that in your lilo.conf you have an entry similar to this:
image = /boot/vmlinuz
root = /dev/hda5 <---- whatever partition is mounted at "/"
label = Linux
append = "hdd=ide-scsi" <---- must be your cdrw drive, if secondary slave then hdd, if master hdc
Run lilo -v as root and reboot. It looks like you still have SCSI emulation set up for the wrong device. Either that or you have the master and slave mixed up. When the computer first boots up, you should see it checking for IDE drives, look closely to make sure that the CDRW is listed as secondary slave and not master.
