That device name is not correct for a V240. That looks correct for a
machine with a SCSI CDROM connected to the first controller (SCSI CDROMs
are ID 6 by convention on Solaris).
On a V240 here, the DVD-ROM is /dev/dsk/c0t0d0s*

In this case, you won't have this device, since the IDE controller doesn't
have a target 6.

It mounts CDROMs and DVDs under /cdrom/volume_name, where volume_name is
the actual volume title read from the media. /cdrom/cdrom0 is then
symlinked to this volume name.
This is what I have on a V240 with IDE DVD-ROM and Solaris 10 media
(6/06 but differences should be minimal):
$ ls -l /cdrom

If the DVD is not being mounted automatically, type "volcheck" to prod the
volume manager into looking for it.
