    did you scsi emulate them?
    to do that edit as root the file /etc/lilo.conf and below the line # Start LILO global section
    type :append="hdx=ide-scsi hdx=ide-scsi" where x is a,b,c,d as what the cdroms are primary master,primary slave,secondary master,secondary slave.
    Then reboot
    Then as root edit your /etc/fstab file delete the lines containg cdrom and add these lines:
    /dev/scd0 mountpoint iso9660 noauto,user,ro 0 0
    /dev/scd1 mountpoint iso9660 noauto,user,ro 0 0
    Then mount them with mount mountpoint
    I hope that the above will be helpfull
