Check that /dev/cdrom is pointing to /dev/scd0
(i.e. do the following command:
ls -l /dev/cdrom
If not, you can simply replace in the mount command /dev/cdrom
But the correct way would be, given that the line below is in fstab,
You should also check that the directory /cdrom exists, and if not, make one.
Also, iso9660 file systems should be supported by the kernel - check this

Certainly you need SCSI support built in the kernel.
(If you got such a kernel ready, then use it. If not,
make one. Changing a kernel is straightforward, although I don't know
how well kde supports this. )

That's different story - you should check that /dev/fd0 exists,
then the question is, which type of file system you want to be
Maybe your floppy refuses to mount for the similar to CD reason...
(type of file system unsupported by the kernel, mounting point, wrong
/dev/floppy link, etc)
