Create an image from the cdrom iso. Create a volume from the image. Attach the volume to the instance.

openstack image create NEW_IMAGE_NAME --file CDROM_IMAGE.iso --disk-format iso --container-format bare
openstack volume create NEW_VOLUME_NAME --image NEW_IMAGE_NAME --size 1
openstack server add volume INSTANCE_NAME NEW_VOLUME_NAME

The volume can then be mounted in the instance using mount. Make the mount permanent by adding an entry to /etc/fstab.

You may want to set some additional image settings to force the load as IDE?

openstack image set --property hw_cdrom_bus=ide --property hw_disk_bus=ide NEW_IMAGE_NAME

It then will be attached as /dev/hdX
