Where's my CD-ROM

I've become accustomed over many years to having a symlink at /dev/cdrom 
pointing to my CD drive.

I mostly use autofs to access the drive as that avoids the need to explicitly 
mount CDs, and motly also avoids having to unmount them.

autofs is configured at I expect:
[[email protected] ~]# grep cd /etc/auto.misc
cd              -fstype=iso9660,ro,nosuid,nodev :/dev/cdrom
[[email protected] ~]#
Perhaps  not perfectly considering selinux, but you get the idea.
/misc exists.

the symlink doesn't exist. However, others do:
[[email protected] ~]# ls -l /dev | grep ^l
lrwxrwxrwx   1 root root         11 Nov 23 21:32 core -> /proc/kcore
lrwxrwxrwx   1 root root          3 Nov 23 21:32 fb -> fb0
lrwxrwxrwx   1 root root         13 Nov 23 21:32 fd -> /proc/self/fd
lrwxrwxrwx   1 root root          3 Nov 23 21:33 floppy -> fd0
lrwxrwxrwx   1 root root         13 Nov 23 21:32 MAKEDEV -> /sbin/MAKEDEV
lrwxrwxrwx   1 root root          3 Nov 23 13:33 par0 -> lp0
lrwxrwxrwx   1 root root          4 Nov 23 21:32 ram -> ram1
lrwxrwxrwx   1 root root          4 Nov 23 21:32 ramdisk -> ram0
lrwxrwxrwx   1 root root         24 Nov 23 21:32 root 
-> /dev/VolGroup00/LogVol00
lrwxrwxrwx   1 root root         15 Nov 23 21:32 stderr -> /proc/self/fd/2
lrwxrwxrwx   1 root root         15 Nov 23 21:32 stdin -> /proc/self/fd/0
lrwxrwxrwx   1 root root         15 Nov 23 21:32 stdout -> /proc/self/fd/1
lrwxrwxrwx   1 root root          4 Nov 23 21:32 systty -> tty0
lrwxrwxrwx   1 root root          4 Nov 23 21:32 XOR -> null
[[email protected] ~]#

My two nahant boxes do, and the one that lacks a floppy disk also lacks the 
symlink. Phew!

In this system, at CD drive is actuall a DVD-ROM drive at hdd.
