The initial boot, installing the base, setting up the system until the first

Did it autodetect the CD-Rom when you installed from the 2.2.r2 set?
(Not sure which version of the boot-floppies is on that set, I do not have
such a set...). Does it work with a different (ie 2.2.10) kernel?
I don't know whats expected behavious for a Mac, any Mac-xpert?

Did this work when installing from the CD set?
