The thrust of that thread resolution is that the 'cdrom=' directive is 
deprecated, not that you can't use real cdrom devices in your disk array. If 
your drive and disks are sufficiently reliable, it should work. The disks 
I've burned myself tend not to be terribly reliable in my drive, but I've had 
no problems with professionally burned media. Xen 3.1.0, WinXP HVM guest.
