How to get access to optical drive from console?

I have installed FC3, and I´m now sitting with a system that only allows
booting to init 3, since the automatically generated xorg.conf file
obviously contains rubbish somewhere in it. That, I´m used to, from
previous installations from scratch with this system.

However, the udev feature strikes me out in this case. I haven´t got a
clue as to how to get access to my DVD-ROM drive, so I can get hold of a
  working xorg.conf file from my backup.

I haven´t been able to find any help on this in the fedora-list
archives. Can anyone give me a hint?

Best regards,
