Remove CD ROMs

I want to remove my CD ROM drives. Not physicaly though.

I am having serious problems (again) with my CD ROM drives after updating my system.

My thinking is (and it may well be flawed) that if I can get Linux to believe there are no CD Rom drives (one CD Drive and one CD burner) that I can then reintroduce them and configure them myself rather than letting SUSE do it for me.

I don't even know if this makes sense to anyone, it does in my little head.
I am running SUSE 8.1 btw.

Any thoughts would be appreciated.
Thanks in advance.

Disable them in the BIOS would be, what I think, the only way you could do that (or rebuild a kernel and leave out support for em).

What kinds of problems are you having? Does SuSE use DevFS?
