My machine has a HP CD-Writer 9300i as /dev/hdd. A linux boot doesn't
work unless I append "hdd=noprobe hdd=cdrom".
Doing this had no effect with the sarge installer.

I tried (in expert mode) adding "hdd=none" to all ide-detect, and
ide-cd, but they don't take this argument happily.

I think we need a way to get those arguments (from the boot line) passed
on to the relevent modules...

I am at a loss, and installing from woody.

Given enough time and money, eventually Microsoft will
re-invent UNIX.
