CD Changers: how to access all cd's ?

I have a NEC 8X4 CD changer in which the "disc 1" works no problem, but the other 3 are inaccessible.  Since there are no devices created for them in /dev  (hdc0,hdc1,hdc2 ?) do I have to simply create the devices for these with the right parms? or is the the support not even in the kernel yet?  (Caldera OpenLinux 1.2, no SCSI, no SCSI emulation, just basic kernel package with NE2000 driver in)

I installed the whole system from "disc 1" but I'd like to be able to mount the others.

Get yourself a recent copy of the 'eject' command...
ftp://sunsite.unc.edu/pub/Linux/utils/disk-management/eject-1.5.tar.gz, it lets you use 'eject -c#' to tell the changer which cd to switch to, I use it with my 4x2 and it works great...

thanks. Will check that out... but will that work with the generic ATAPI driver or do I need a specific driver for this CD drive?
