Sorry for the delay in replying - I've only just read your request!
Answer to a): Log in as root and from a command line prompt issue the
ln -s /dev/scd0 /dev/cdrom
Have a look at the manual page for the ln (link)
man 1 ln
This will tell you all about both hard and soft
(symbolic) links. In the above case
the -s command line flag makes a symbolic link
from the file named /dev/cdrom
to the i-node that is /dev/scd0.
You certainly did not (do not) need to use the
mknod command to resolve
As for b), I don't know. Perhaps someone else would like to comment.
Hope this helps.
Very many thanks - as always I failed to RTFM!
