cd problem on morphix hd install


I hope the debian guru's can help me get the cdrom working in a morphix light harddrive install!!!! I tried the morphix forum on their website but, it seems the people there are no more knowledgable than I am.

When I try to mount the cdrom I get this error:

mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/cdrom,
missing codepage or other error

The cd in the drive is the original morphix light live cd I used to do the HD install, my /etc/fstab shows:

/dev/fd0 /floppy vfat users,noauto, 0 0
/dev/cdrom /cdrom iso9660 ro,users,noauto 0 0

I have looked around but I can't seem to figure out what is wrong.

Thanks

/dev/cdrom is a smbolic link to something - your is not created
the strangest thing is that I just look at my and saw that it points to scsi device
/dev/cdrom -> scd0 - my disks are IDE
look at dmesg and see how your cdrom is found and make link to it.

scsi0 : SCSI host adapter emulation for IDE ATAPI devices
Vendor: TEAC Model: CD-532E-B Rev: 1.0A
Type: CD-ROM ANSI SCSI revision: 02
Attached scsi generic sg0 at scsi0, channel 0, id 0, lun 0, type 5

perhaps because they decided to mount all cdrom like cdwriters

Thanks Ipolit,

Here is the output from dmesg:

ide-scsi is deprecated for cd burning! Use ide-cd and give dev+/dev/hdx as device
scsi0 : SCSI host adapter emulation for IDE ATAPI devices
Vendor: LITE-ON Model: DVD SOHD-167T Rev: 9S19
Type: CD-ROM ANSI SCSI revision: 02
sr0: scsi3-mmc drive: 48x/48x cd/rw xa/form2 cdda tray
Uniform CD-ROM driver Revision: 3.20
Attached scsi CD-ROM sr0 at scsi0, channel 0, id 0, lun 0
Attached scsi generic sg0 at scsi0, channel 0, id 0, lun 0, type 5

What do I need to enter to get the correct link?

try
ln -s /dev/cdrom /dev/scd0
or replace in /etc/fstab /dev/cdrom with /dev/scd0
but first try to mount manualy
mount -t iso9660 /dev/scd0 /cdrom (as root)
and if it works, the make these cahnges
