check dmesg output for your cd-burner detection, if it was loaded with ide-scsi emulation it should appear as /dev/sr[n] where [n] is a number. Tehn you shoudl be able to issue
mount -t iso9660 /dev/sr[n] /mnt/point
where /mnt/point is a mount point for your cd-burner. On my machine I have an IDE cd-burner that is scsi emulated with ide-scsi. It appears as /dev/sr0 I have created a symlink
ln -sf /dev/sr0 /dev/cdrom
an put the following line in my /etc/fstab
/dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom iso9660 noauto,owner,ro 0 0

my mount point for it is /mnt/cdrom
Hope it helps.
