Thank you for your installation reports.

Jurij Smakov tells me that the problems with the esp driver for CD-ROM 
access is a known issue in current kernels and AIUI not resolved for 
2.6.18 either. Jurij said he'll try to work on it, but also that you've 
been known to hack on such issues yourself :-)

The isofs module should be available in the initrd. Is it not?

Could you perhaps try a netboot install for this box? Please follow up to 
this report.
