Hello grml-users,

as mentioned on http://wiki.grml.org/doku.php?id=grml_0.7 you might
have noticed, that the symlinks to /dev/cdrom and /dev/dvd don't
exist on your grml 0.7 system.

To fix this issue just run:

# cd /etc/udev/rules.d/
# ln -s ../cd-aliases-generator.rules z75_cd-aliases-generator.rules

If you want to mount a CD/DVD in grml live mode just manually mount
the corresponding device (/dev/hdc or whatever) to /mnt/cdrom or

We are working on an updated version of udev which will fix this
issue automatically on your grml-box when upgrading the udev
