Bug#385233: Debian Netinstall 3.1r2 cannot detect cdrom on Intel D945GNT motherboard
Thanks. :) I used the Testing (etch) nightly snapshot and it worked OK.
However, there is a minor annoyance that should be addressed before the next
Stable release. When selecting Reiserfs for root partition, /etc/fstab gets
created with the "notail" mount option even when it is not selected during
install. Noatime is fine and desired (and was selected) but notail on a
Reiser v3 filesystem is a waste of space due to no tail-packing.
Also, the Ethernet device detection order could use some work; eth0 should be
the motherboard Intel 1000 (it showed up as eth2 with DHCP); there is also a
PCI card using the 8139too driver, which got detected as eth0. There is no
3rd ethernet device.
Referring back to lspci:
02:00.0 Ethernet controller: Intel Corporation 82573V Gigabit Ethernet
Controller (Copper) (rev 03)
07:02.0 Ethernet controller: D-Link System Inc RTL8139 Ethernet (rev 10)
The motherboard Ethernet device is 1st.
According to dmesg:

Thanks for the links.
