Did you try to umount the CDROM Drive? One of my old computers did the same thing to me, and i had to umount it to get it to open.

dont know if this would help your case or not.

well, unmounting will work, but do I really have to do that everytime I want to eject my cdrom drive?

I'm sure there is a way to do it .. but I don't know how too. I'm hoping someone else can give you a better solution

Can't autofs take of it?
Otherwise just use 'eject' if you're running current? dunno about 8.1...

about the samba... What exactly are you looking for? A 'locate smbclient' or something alike should do the job if I understand your question right.

The slack package for Samba install the programs, smbd and nmbd, in /usr/sbin. If it was installed from source and used the defaults there are located in /usr/local/samba/bin I believe it is.

In regard to the CDROM drive. In Linux, the drive is "locked" by the mount command. It has to be unmounted, in order to unlock. That will hold true on any removeable media with the capability. I floppy disk drive for instance cannot usually be locked, emmm, except maybe the LS120 drives. Many a disk has been corrupted because it cannot be locked and the disk is removed without unmounting it. Just because the drive light isn't doing anything, there may still be unwritten buffers that need to be flushed. Unmounting flushes all the buffers in order to close the files. If a device cannot be unmounted, then it is usually in use by a program that must first be terminated by the user of the program.

Most times a simple 'cd' command can be issued to take you out of the CDROM's path, you can't unmount a CDROM if your working directory is anywhere in it's base path such as /mnt/cdrom or wherever you mounted it.
