I had to boot with debian-installer/framebuffer=false otherwise the screen
is difficult to read (sync problem?).

With the 2.4 kernel, I failed to find a way to get the CD recognised even by
loading the modules manually (see below). I guess this is because I had no
way to get the SCSI bus rescanned and the needed devices added (see #246790)

With 2.6 kernel, all went fine as soon as I manually loaded the following
modules (order is important):
