If you do have "hdc=ide-scsi" in grub.conf, then your cdrom link is
invalid. Either remove that option from grub, or change the link to point
to scd0.

The recomended way is to remove the option. The ide-scsi subsystem was
broken in the first 2.6 kernels (and it was never that good to start
with). I don't know its state in the new ones, but I guess the
recomendation keeps.
