CD-ROM access on NON-SGI systems?

I'm looking for a way to access my CD-ROM drive through Python (open, close,
query whether there is/isn't a disk in the drive, etc..).  I noticed the
`cd' module which would accomplish what I want to do, but it's only available
under IRIX.  Is there any way to do this under FreeBSD/Linux with Python?

Basically, I need to write an interactive script that prompts the user to load
a CD, then ejects the CD after some processing and waits until a 2nd CD is 
loaded before it continues processing.  Any ideas would be helpful.
