Yes, currently /dev/cdrom looks like:

[root@Godzilla root]# ls -al /dev/cdrom
lrwxrwxrwx    1 root     root            8 Dec  1 19:20 /dev/cdrom ->
[root@Godzilla root]#

So you're suggesting I can just delete that link and do 

ln -s /dev/hdh /dev/cdrom


Is it really that easy? ;-)

Maybe I'll try making a new 'cdrom' - /dev/cd2 -> /dev/hdh and just
leave the current link there? Sounds safer to me...
