I use CCS, so I can't help with C18 specifics.

CCS uses a pragma called #FUSES - you might want to check your manual
for "fuses" - you might be missing it looking for "configuration bits".
That said, I suspect it is instead going to be a syntax variation on
responses you've already gotten.  There must have been example C files
included with the compiler - you can usually figure this kind of stuff
out from those even if it's not clear or seems to be missing from the

eeprom and rom are not the same!  If you can do inline assembly, just
use the short routines in the 18F data sheet for reading and writing to
eeprom - they work just fine.  The "rom" directive is like const - it
forces a variable into program memory (NOT eeprom).  I know this much
about C18 from the CD I got from the masters.  Couldn't find anything
on initializing eeprom data.
There are undoubtedly library functions for doing this - they will be
along the lines of:  x = read_eeprom(3);  try looking for something
similar.  Try searching through all the .h files for the string "eeprom"
to find the prototype.

Again, CCS uses a pragma (#ROM).  Perhaps check your list of non-standard
