Comments/Problems:  2 Main bugs.
 * No graphics starting page still. (Since #248363 beta-4)
 * Now ISA PCMCIA network card is properly detacted now.
    (Thus closing #248363)
 * Still CDROM mount error experienced.   (*** BUG1 ***)
    (unmount and mount yieleded OK result.
     CD was valid only after remount)
 * debootstrap look for Release file in wrong location.  (*** BUG2 ***)
    (/cdrom/dists//Release instead of /cdrom/dists/sarge/Release)
 * Did not bother to install grub manually.

Key hardware issues:
  * CD-ROM has slow spin-up (Also this could not read CD-RW as boot

Key install process info:
 * ALT-F3 screen ends with following screen:

   /dev/cdroms/cdroms0: open failed: Read-only file system
   No matching file system found
   /dev/cdroms/cdroms0: open failed: Read-only file system

   Reading all physical volumes.  This may take a while...
