Debian Installer (nightly version 20050128 netinst.iso) does not succeed in loading the cdrom drive so it cannot proceed further with the installation.

To clarify: The cdrom boots an i choose "expert-power4" from the choice of kernels prompt. Kernel loads. Debian installer loads. Prompts for choosing keyboard, locale, etc., which work. Only option now left is to load off the cdrom the next part of the installer, but it cant detect the cdrom at all.
