Simply do the following after you have booted in Linux:
#] cd /
#] mkdir cdrom
(take a look at the appropriate hd that coresponds to your cd , you can see that while the Kernel boots e.g
hdd IDE ATAPI CDROM HITACHI)
#] mount /dev/hdd /cdrom
and you are ready...

The problem is that cd-rom is seen as ide tape drive not cd-rom can add stuff to lilo like hdx=cdrom(I try this but kernel said that tis is bad option)

You don't ACTUALLY say "hdx=cdrom", you use the correct name for your CD-ROM drive, for example hdb, hdc, or hdd.

JB, the only way you'll get this working is to code the following in your /etc/lilo.conf...
append = "hdx=noprobe hdx=cdrom"
where "x" is your CD-ROM's device.
Good Luck :)
