CD-ROM drive not available on kernel 2.6.18-1.2200.fc5



As I proceeded to burn the FC-6 DVD image I just downloaded, I noticed,
that I had no /dev/hdc anymore. It was detected by the kernel however,
as the output from dmesg shows:

Probing IDE interface ide0...
hda: WDC WD800JB-00CRA1, ATA DISK drive
hdb: WDC WD1600JB-00EVA0, ATA DISK drive
ide0 at 0x1f0-0x1f7,0x3f6 on irq 14
Probing IDE interface ide1...
hdc: _NEC DVD_RW ND-4570A, ATAPI CD/DVD-ROM drive
ide1 at 0x170-0x177,0x376 on irq 15

It also shows up in hwbrowser. But neither CD-ROM nor blank DVD get me
anywhere. The device simply doesn't exist. Maybe it is a problem with
udev. However after booting into the previous kernel 2.6.17-1.2187_FC5
everything works as expected.
Is this a known problem, and if yes, is it also present in FC-6?
