$ sudo modprobe cdrom (if you have sudo, or su followed by modprobe
cdrom without sudo). (Perhaps you also need sr_mod)

lsmod to check it is there and look in /dev again.

These links should be made for you, and not everything in /dev/ is a
link (oftenyou use MAKEDEV or mknod to create devices manually, nowadays
udev  took over devfs, but you might run either on your knoppix).
