You could check to see wether /dev/cdrom exists, if it does, then it is a good sign. In case it does exist, make sure that you have something similar as this in your /etc/fstab file :
/dev/hdc /mnt/cdrom auto umask=0,user,iocharset=iso8859-1,codepage=850,noauto,rw,exec,users 0 0
Once that is there open up a terminal and type mount /dev/cdrom or open up
System -> Configuration -> KDE -> Storage Devices and select your cd rom drive, right click and telll it to mount.
