/dev/ide/host0/bus1/target0/lun0/cd problem - Thanks in advance - Linux Setup, Configuration & Administration

Well this probably doesn't happen everyday to people. BUT after my system crashed /dev/ide/host0/bus1/target0/lun0/cd <I believe that's the proper device> disapeared off my dev list. IT appears /dev/hdc is linked to this as well as /dev/cdrom (in some way). However this means I cannot use my CDROM (woopie but it's still a real pain for me). So I need to remake this with mknod my problem is.. what are the Major and Minor #'s supposed to be for this? and why is mknod's doentation so piccyunish?

    system crashed /dev/ide/host0/bus1/target0/lun0/cd <I believe that's

    So I need to remake this with mknod my problem is.. what are the Major
    and Minor #'s supposed to be for this? and why is mknod's doentation
    so piccyunish? I suppose it's ment to be used automatically or by a
    program that knows what it's doing. :)

    Some suggestions would be welcome here.
    If someone could give me a clue I would appreciate it (low on clues lately).

    The location of the device file seems to imply that he uses devfs, so as
    far as I know the device file should paaear when the driver is loaded,
    and the symlinks should be made by the devfsd. If you use devfs, any
    device nodes created manually will be gone after you reboot.

    best regards

    I wonder if the .. I bet /etc got biffed when my system crashed any clue
    where the scripts are that handle this? I guess I'll have to dig around
    and find them. Thanks this is a lot of help.
