As long as it's jumpered correctly, this should be fine

I believe the purpose of this is that programs like mplayer expect /dev/dvd,
which of course doesn't exist in FreeBSD. I suppose that linking to the
acd[n] device is the easiest way to make things work without having to
remember which device is your DVD drive. You can also manually specify the
device in mplayer, but perhaps this is a hard-wired value in other programs.
