Symlink Nightmare!! Help

Was trying to setup my cdrom hdc ide1 udma33 and cdrw hda ide0 udma66. I started creating symlinks with diff syntax combos trying to get cdrom and cdrw to mount. I mkdir for /mnt/hdc and /mnt/hda. Think I even tried mkdir /hda and mkdir hdc. No matter what I did I cld not mount even cdrom. Now where are all those links I created stored and the mkdir -p ? How do I cleanup this mess? dmesg displays the devices and their related stats? Memory Addr IRQ BTW I am using a Soyo6 BA+IV mobo with HPT366 onboard Controller chipset + BX Intel chipset
dmesg displays:
1] HPT366: not 100% native mode:will probe irqs later.
2] PllX4:not 100% native mode:will probe irqs later
3] Intel PCIC probe: not found
4] ds: no socket drivers loaded!
5] raid0 personality registerd
6] scsi 0 hosts
7]scsi detedted total
(this is not in the order they appear in) Any help is appreciated!

one thing you can do is use locate to find them, you can also use history to see the commands you typed to create them.

use ls -l to see if the file is a symlink.

You should not need symlinks to use a cdrom.

All you need is a directory to mount it in.

Normally there is a /dev/hd? that is the cdrom, and you can simply use it. if you want a symlink to it thats ok, but it is not really necessary.
