Going crazy... "No common CD-ROM drive was detected"


After solving a problem, a new one is here!

The installer loads well from the initrd, however when it detects hardware looking for CD-ROM drives, it says that it can't find a CD-ROM unit! In fact in /dev there is no "cdrom" entry, even if the units show well during SCSI bus scan. I have a TEAC 12/10/32 SCSI burner and also connected a Plextor 12x SCSI reader and none of them is recognized.

The installer asks me if I want to load a driver from floppy but I think it shouldn't be necessary.
