Ya got me on that one. ... Are you trying the actual device (i.e.,
/dev/hdc) or a symlink (i.e., /dev/cdrom)? Does the messages log
(/var/log/messages) show any errors during boot, like that it isn't
finding the CD-ROM?

In what? Gnome? KDE? Do you mean system sounds? Or when you play sound
files? etc. Same comment about checking logs, for errors finding
