I don't believe you will have much luck, at least on my machine cdrom
is only a symlink to cdrom0. If cdrom0 doesn't exist, then cdrom points
to nowhere. Why did you delete cdrom0 and why don't you just create it
again? It is only an empty directory, a "mkdir /media/cdrom0; chmod 755
/media/cdrom0; ln -s /media/cdrom0 /media/cdrom" should fix the mess.
