sorry but your email is not really very clear about what exactly you are
trying to do ...
but this might help anyway ...
do a 'll /dev/cdrom1' to see if this too is already a symbolic link
if it is then this is what you want to link too. The 'ln' command syntax
works the same as the 'cp' or 'mv' commands - ie. ln nameOfOriginalFile
if you need more help - please explain your sitch a bit better and we
will see where we can go from there ...
