CD ROM devices are actually called /dev/cd0 in GNU Mach. With the
command line above I could mount /dev/cd0. cd to /dev and run
./MAKEDEV cd0 there to create the device node.

Unfortunately, when enabling a SCSI hosts, the network card stops
working for some reason, maybe simply a problem of shared IRQ.
