I've studied the error messages more closely and realized that it was
missing a /dev/cdroms/* file. The whole /dev/cdroms folder is missing
actually. So I did

mkdir /dev/cdroms
cd /dev/cdroms
ln -s /dev/hdb cdrom0

and the installation is running like a charm. I suppose the commands
above wouldn't be necessary if the hw-detect module detected the cd-rom
properly. And I guess the hw-detect wouldn't fail if it either loaded
the ide- modules or was told that everything is in the kernel and there
is no need to give up if modules can't be loaded.
