OK, the ISO is from the link you sent to the wolverine-list for 7.1 -
RH7.1-SGI-XFS-0.10.3.iso. I have one ide hd, and an ide cd.
The lines are already in devfsd.conf.
modprobe ide-cd fails with a lot of unresolved symbol errors. in ide-cd.o,
and also complains taht /etc/modules.conf is more recent than
I'll try recompiling the kernel with the ide-cd compiled in, but any other

"modprobe ide-cd" should fix this for you, but I thought that devfsd
should auto-load the ide-cd module for you...

Otherwise, add these lines to the bottom of your devfsd.conf file, and
see if it works some magic for you.
# Handle /dev/mouse...
# This assumes that something else (initscripts) will load mouse modules
# If input/mice gets registered, link /dev/mouse to it:
REGISTER input/mice EXECUTE /bin/ln -sf input/mice mouse
# Lkewise for misc/psaux:
REGISTER misc/psaux EXECUTE /bin/ln -sf misc/psaux mouse
# If we unregister the usb mouse, then we probably want /dev/mouse to be
UNREGISTER input/mice EXECUTE /bin/ln -sf misc/psaux mouse
# ...and /dev/cdrom
# In case no cdrom modules loaded, point link over to /dev/cdroms/cdrom0
LOOKUP cdrom EXECUTE /bin/ln -sf cdroms/cdrom0 cdrom
# Similarly, if the module loaded, create the /dev/cdrom link
REGISTER cdroms/cdrom0 EXECUTE /bin/ln -sf cdroms/cdrom0 cdrom
# Remove link when cdrom modules are unloaded
UNREGISTER cdroms/cdrom0 EXECUTE /bin/rm -f cdrom
