Bug#300706: debian sarge (debian-installer system) dvdrom and floppy issues
Thank you for your response.
I have udevd proces running, I just have the debian sarge defaults
Known issue :-(
Package "udev" will get installed with the "desktop" task.
This can break things on "/dev".
To fix this you have to at least reboot after installation once more.
There is currently work in progress on this issue, so could you try a daily
build, or at least RC3 (when out) and report back?
I have not heard of this "desktop" task, would you be able to direct me
to some documentation about it please?
I have rebooted several times since instalation.

Ok, sorry not to include that info in my first post. I did not know

way to set up my IDE NEC CD/DVD writer please..?
To get better SATA support you have to install with "linux26" or "expert26"
on the installation boot prompt, instead of only pressing <Return>.
Could you try this also and report back?
This is how I did the install in January. As the netinst ISO did not
setup an optimal kernel, post install I switched to 2.6.8-2-k7
