It's dificult to do with debian installer as libata is loaded BEFORE any user
interaction, and no rmmod is present to remove and reload the modules. 

However, I've installed debian linux-image-2.6.15-1-686 in Ubuntu Breezy,
in single user mode and CDROM was not detected. dmesg shows that device is
ignored due to ATAPI disabled in libata.

So I've added the line 'libata atapi_enabled=1' to /etc/mkinitramfs/modules,
dpkg-reconfigure linux-mage-2.6.15-1-686, reboot in single user mode and the
CDROM was detected and devices created. The difference among both initrd images
is that the working one has the line 'libata atapi_enabled=1' added to
/conf/modules. However those are initrd images from mkinitramfs in Ubuntu (from
initramfs-tools 0.32), and they are very different from debian-installer

Hope this help
