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.
