Im no expert on this, actually im a complete noob, but, I think that you have to edit /etc/fstab. And change one of the /dev/cdrom settings to auto. Hope this helps.

The standard way of doing this these days doesn't involve the kernel at all. You need to emerge hal, dbus and ivman (or just emerge ivman which will pull in the rest as dependencies.)

This will help.
