As I'm having problems accessing my DVD, I'm wondering if the
DVD drive is properly connected. 

To check, I switched to the boot prompted and typed probe-ide. I got:

{1} ok probe-ide
  Device 0  ( Primary Master )
         Not Present

  Device 1  ( Primary Slave )
         Not Present

  Device 2  ( Secondary Master )
         Not Present

  Device 3  ( Secondary Slave )
         Not Present

Hm - no DVD drive.

Next, I ran probe-scsi:

{1} ok probe-scsi
Target 0
  Unit 0   Disk     SEAGATE ST336607LSUN36G 0507
Target 1
  Unit 0   Disk     SEAGATE ST336607LSUN36G 0507


Where is my DVD drive?

Should I start to panic? :)
