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.
