you can either access the cdrom via konqueror. Type "media:/" into the
konqueror address bar to get a list of available devices. You should find
your cdrom drive there.
If you want back the item on your dektop, then right-click on your desktop and
select "Create New->Link to Device->CD-Rom Device" from the popup menu.
A window will pop up which will ask you for the name of the deivce. The window
has a tab named "Device". Select that tab and choose your cdrom-device from
the drop-down list. Then click ok to get the device icon on your desktop.
Always code as if the guy who ends up maintaining
your code will be a violent psychopath who knows
where you live.
