Unable to detect CD drive by Guest on XEN server

Hello All,

I have Xen installed from SLES 10. I wanted to install and setup SLES 10 as guest.Using YaST (Run an OS Install Program) I could finish of with first CD after which reboot starts. After rebooting I am unable to give my 2,3 and 4 CD. I skipped the installation thinking I could update the software later. I am able to log into Guest, thereby I have configuration file under /etc/xen/vm .What changes should I have to make in configuration file so that the guest identifies CD Drive. I have CD drive in host (XEN domain 0) as /dev/dvd. Please reply me for the above problem.
Thanks Very much,

I'm not real familiar with the software you're using but could it be that you need to give guest root permissions?
