Bug#255388: debian installer not install LG HL-DT-ST RW/DVD GCC-4480B

Hi Andre,

   I may be wrong.  But I have a similar problem.  My setup is: Gigabyte 8I875
     hda: Maxtor 6Y160PO   160GB PATA disk
     hdc: HL-DL-ST GSA-4081B   DVD-RAM drive
     hdd: Yamaha CRW-F1E   CD-R/RW drive
If the machine is "warm", frequently only LG drive has a trouble.
   BIOS recognize it, but kernel fails.
But if machine is really "cold", it usually won't miss it.  I housed the system
in a big tower case; thus cooling is not much problem: just wait for a couple
of hours.
   Strangely, Windows never misses it.
   I think the problem is in one of 4 areas.  Cable, M/B, Drive, and/or kernel.
And I am very suspicios about M/B.  Thus recently I have decided to go for
Abit, Asus, or Tyan M/B, but not others.  Sorry to Giga fans, but reliability
weighs heavier than the abundant selection and price.  Of course, I am writing
this on GA-8I875.
