Note that d-i rc2 is not yet released, I assume you used pre-rc2. You
don't say what CD image you used.

This is normal if you're using the netinst iso. That's a 110 mb CD
image. Including a full set of optimised kerels for i386 would make it a
300+ mb cd image.. If you use the businesscard or full CD, you'll get an
optimised kernel.

So the problem is a lack of a cdrom1 mount point? This is probably the
discover1 bug mentioned in the errata, since it seems the installer
_did_ see both CD drives to add them to fstab. See the errata for a fix.
