I have a Linux SuSE 8.0 which installed without problems from a

I tried to follow the (too slim) documentation I found at
http://sdb.suse.de/en/sdb/html/tbraza_ide_brenner.html with the hope

in the desktop.
The worst is that I also lost control over my floppy (Could not mount
device: /dev/fd0 is not a valid block device) and over the formerly
working CD-Rom (Could not mount device: no medium found).
I browsed the usenet, but could not find a way to fix this problem.
I include here a few info:
hdc: CREATIVE CD5233E, ATAPI CD/DVD-ROM drive
hdd: PHILIPS CDRW48P, ATAPI CD/DVD-ROM drive
Somewere in my system I find written that:
PHILIPS CDRW48P has the following
CD Type: cdrw
Device name: /dev/sr1
and that *also* CDRW48P has the following
CD Type: cdrom
Device name: /dev/sr0
I am a beginner; please help, if possible.
Which commands should I use to undertand and/or fix this annoyance?
