Questions:
Is gentoo installed and you are trying to get your DVD going? do you have devfs compiled into your kernel?
if the answer is yes then: nano -w /etc/devfsd.conf
check that your dvd device is uncomented and ready to go pointing to your correct cdroms/cdrom?? dvd

you can also:
cd /dev
ln -s hdc dvd

and that should work.

Question : why are you trying to mount your dvd?


Cheers

you should be able to mount the cdrom by #mount /mnt/cdrom
if the dvd palyer was what you used to install gentoo then devfsd.conf has it as the first cdrom or cdrom/cdrom0 and you can leave this...but uncomment the dvd section in devfsd and change all the cdrom1stuff to cdrom0 this will make it recognize it as a dvd and as a cdrom ...so if you run ogle it will see it as a dvd player and if you put a audio cd in and run ksCD it will play the cd
