Post more information? Show commands used to try and access them. Show a
line or two of results. Make sure you have the proper linux config
item(s) enabled and mention or show what they are. Determine if you have
the correct entries under /dev for what you are trying to do. For example,

  ls -l /dev/fd* and/or /dev/floppy and /dev/hd[a-d] and/or /dev/cdrom

and so on.
