How do I keep soft link /dev/dvd after reboot?

O.K., now I understand that udev creates these device files dynamically.
I did:

cd /dev
ln -s hdc dvd

so that I can use mplayer without specifying -dvd-device each time.
udev erases this after each reboot.  How do I have a persistent soft
link from hdc to dvd?
