Each machine has just one CD-ROM drive (they're actually fairly recent DVD drives). Now that I'm in front of the machine and have tried it again, this is what I get:

... Drive name from proc filesystem: hdb Subdirectory /proc/ide/. Subdirectory /proc/ide/.. Subdirectory /proc/ide/hdb Subdirectory /proc/ide/hda Subdirectory /proc/ide/ide0 Searching for hdb: . .. hdb Matches! Found line for device ide0 Major version number for device ide0 is 3 Probably found CD-ROM Made /dev/cdrom Unable to identify CD-ROM format. Startup failed: Invalid argument
