As far as your kernel is concerned there is no CDROM drive attached to it.

You should see something like:

atapci0: <Intel ICH4 ATA100 controller> port 0xf000-0xf00f,0-0x3,0-0x7,0-0x3,0-0x7 irq 0 at device 31.1 on pci0
ata0: at 0x1f0 irq 14 on atapci0
ata1: at 0x170 irq 15 on atapci0
... snip ...
sio1: type 16550A
ppc0: parallel port not found.
ad0: DMA limited to UDMA33, non-ATA66 cable or device
ad0: 76319MB <WDC WD800JB-00CRA1> [155061/16/63] at ata0-master UDMA33
acd0: CDROM <ATAPI 44X CDROM> at ata1-master PIO4
... snip ...

Note that the last line identifies the CDROM. Now the most common cause of this problem is that the CDROM is set as a "SLAVE" on the ATA bus and there is no master on that bus. Or sometimes its set as Master w/Slave Present and its waiting for the slave to ack before it does. Either way, its one of (in order of likelyness):

        drive is mis-jumpered
        drive is mis-cabled
        drive is dead
