Since I had the exact same problems with both the businesscard and
netinstall cdrom images, I'm reporting them together.
I needed to use "linux ramdisk_size=8192" to get the cd to boot.
modprobe of sr_mod failed, apparently it is trying to use the known
broken busybox modprobe. Same problem as has been reported before.
The businesscard image is now trying to load modules off of the cdrom.
This seems to be a new problem.
