<Description of the install, in prose, and any thoughts, comments

[?] Detect and mount cdrom
Error while running modprobe -v sr_mod

The cdrom player is in the compatible components list for the Ultra60

The cdrom player is detected by Woody install cd.

The harddisk Fujitsu MAP3367NC is also in the compatible components list
for the Ultra60.
Is it possible to have this disk predefined in the fdisk partitioner?
Some older Ultra60 compatible disks are predefined and selectable in de
fdisk partitioning dialog.
It would be nice to have the Fujitsu MAP3367NC (and others from the
components list) added.

In the Woody fdisk dialog i was forced to answer all kinds of obscure
questions about sectors/track, interleave facter etc.. Although i have the
documentation on the drive..i was unsure about a number of answers.

Has any work been done on the sound-card (Audio Module 501-4155) of this
Ultra60? Apart from wanting to install the 2.6 kernel having sound would
be a bonus.

Thanks for the Sparc port :-)
