'error "/dev/hda: No such device or address"'

Check to see if /dev/cdrom is a symbolic link to the correct device.

I'm using the onboard raid controller as an IDE controller in order for all of my devices to have their own IDE controller. The system recognises it as the 3rd IDE controller, hence /dev/hde.
