        Thanks to all that answered my humble question. My original
question was:
> Does anyone know how to play an audio CD on an Ultra 10. I am
> Workman 1.3 and it doesn't seem to "see" the CD-ROM drive. I get the
> error: "Couldn't find a CD device!" and the program quits.
> I have had luck with Workman before on a Sparc 5. I am thinking
> that perhaps workman is looking for a SCSI device and all the Ultra 10
> is a IDE CD-ROM, but I am not sure. Perhaps there is other software I
> could use? Anyone have any ideas?

        All of the answers I got can be boiled down to three things, and
all of them have worked.
        1.) create links in /dev
        ln -s rdsk/c0t2d0s2 rsr0
        ln -s dsk/c0t2d0s2 sr0
        or 2.) recompile Workman to look at c0t2d0
        and finally 3.) use xmcd, which btw has a much better interface.
