SCSI CD Not recognised in setup...

SCSI CD Not recognised in setup... so I borrowed an IDE CD from another machine. Mandrake 8 set itself up perfectly, even finding and mounting the SCSI CD (which neither RedHat or Mandrake could find in the setup routine).
So far so good. I put the IDE CD back in to its machine, and run Mandrake. No problem until I try to install a printer. Then it says "please insert the setup device /etc/cdrom" (or something, that is from memory). I have no choice but to cancel.
Also, /mnt/cdrom is there even though the CD is no longer in the machine.
So I want to achieve two things:
1) Persuade the machine that the IDE CD-ROM is gone forever, and make the current CD /mnt/cdrom (not /mnt/cdrom2)
2) Tell the printer setup (and anything else) that the default location for the CDROM is /etc/hds2 (or whatever it is).
This is my second bash at Linux so I am not a complete newbie (but not far off).
