[PLUG] system hangs on boot looking for CD-ROM driver

After jumping through a bunch of hoops to get a physical server converted to a VMWare Workstation VM, I'm almost there but have a weird issue: the system boots to a certain point and hangs. The last things displayed are:

>sr0:  scsi3-mmc drive: 1x/1x writer dvd-ram cd/rw xa/form2 cdda tray
>Uniform CD-ROM Driver Revision: 3.20

I've tried turning off the "connect at boot" option for the CD drive and this still occurs.
How would I fix this?
Does it have anything to do with lines that start like these in /etc/fstab that are in the original server's file but seem to be missing from the one in the VM?
