When trying to install using the Linux 2.6 kernel, the installation
hangs during the hardware detection to find CD-ROM drives.  The last
message is
"Loading module 'ide-cd' for 'Linux ATAPI CD-ROM' ...".  If I switch to
a console and do a 'dmesg', the last few lines are:

ide-cd: cmd 0x5a timed out
hdc: lost interrupt
ide-cd: cmd 0x5a timed out
hdc: lost interrupt
hdc: lost interrupt

The CD-ROM drive is identified as a "TOSHIBA CD-ROM XM-1602B, ATAPI
CD/DVD-ROM drive".

This problem did not appear when trying to install using the Linux 2.4
