Had the known problem with SATA CD-rom. Tried the workaround of "install
libata.apati_enabled=1" at the first prompt. Unsuccesful with detecting
and mounting CD-rom.
Next try I wrote "expert install libata.apati_enabled=1" in the prompt.
Got into expert mode and could deselect the drivers I didn't want to
install right now (all except ide-generic, ide-cd and isofs). After
installing those I got a complaint that more drivers were needed for the
hardware, the drivers being ide-mod, ide-probe-mod, ide-floppy. These are
drivers that weren't even selectable in the table of drivers.
Is the problem that I haven't got all needed drivers on the CD-image?
