Following a fresh install of FreeBSD 6.2 STABLE without 
doing all updates.

After following the Manual guide on setting up permanent 
symbolic links as you suggest and having the correct link 
to /dev/cdrom I still have problems trying to play cds. 
They do play and I can hear the sound too,, but most of the 
time there is an intermittent pause after the track has 
been playing for several seconds and then a skip to the 
next track. Sometimes it skips to the next track without 
playing any of the current one. 

I have been and still do play music cds under Linux systems 
and never had any problems.

any ideas?
