Question k3b screwed my cd drives?

ok, so i just ran k3b setup for the first time and now i can't access my cd-rom... that is, it worked fine before i installed k3b, now i can't get to it... not data discs or audio. the drive light flashes, but konqueror, grip, xmms, nothing can seem to read it anymore. did k3b screw up my cd-rom settings, and if so, how do i fix it? i went into mandrake control center and allowed non-root users to mount the drives, and in grip changed the cd-rom drive from /dev/cdrom to /mnt/cdrom (which is how it was accessed before)-- ideas?

mandrake 9.1/kde3.1
primary ide: creative pc-dvd 6x, secondary: samsung 24x cd-rw

Look in /etc for a file called fstab, and hopefully an fstab.backup or something similar. K3b almost hosed mine but I had a backup to restore.

Please update your forum profile to show the Mdk9.1 distro too.
