Here on Dapper 6.06 LTS, kscd has an "Extras" button lower right on the
GUI - choosing "Configure kscd" --> Settings and Behaviour shows an entry
field for the device - in may case it points to /dev/cdrom, which is a
symlink to /dev/hdc

$ ls -l /dev/cdrom
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 3 2006-12-31 00:13 /dev/cdrom -> hdc

If your cdrom is on /dev/hdb , I would try typing in /dev/hdb directly in
that space, unless "ls -l /dev/cdrom " already points at /dev/hdb.
