Whenever I make a symbolic link to the cdrom using
#ln -s /dev/hdc /dev/cdrom
the link gets deleted when i restart the system, how will I make it permanent??

My be SELinux is installed on the system.
Why do you want that? if possibly for VCD playing then change the preferences of Xine or Mplayer ( I am assuming) to '/dev/hdc' or whatever on your system for CD and same way for DVD. It will work.

NO, because the permission for hdc is set to read-only for non root user and can not be executed, and whenever I change the permission and restart, it will change by itself to default, i.e read only.

I had the same problem in Fedora3, but if I remember right changing preferences in mplayer worked for me. Can you tell why you need to make it permanent ?
