Right now, it is not possible to use a live cdrom. You need to make an image. If you directly open /dev/disk1s0, you first need to dismount it using disktool -u disk1 or the Disk Utility, but without ejecting it. In addition, a guest Windows sees it as an audio CDROM.

well, I was using that actually, but I just wanted to doublecheck..
I created a blank image file, and when I run that, I get

mybox:~/qemu_images root# /opt/local/bin/qemu win2k.img -cdrom /dev/disk1s0 -boot d
/dev/disk1s0: Device busy
qemu: could not open hard disk image '/dev/disk1s0
mybox:~/qemu_images root#

thats after I ejected, re-inserted the win2k cdrom. Im not sure why its busy,
but Im sure that /dev/disk1s0 is the CDROM on OSX.

I don't know how OS X works, so I don't know the correct solution
for this.  But if you can copy the CD-ROM to an ISO image file,
then it should work to specify the ISO file as the argument to
CD-ROM.  This is what I always do.
