Bug#412677: debian-installer: infinite loop when misdetecting cd-rom
when installing into a vmware, I somehow managed to coax the installer
into not recognizing the installation CD (full snapshot CD1 from
2007-02-26) any more. This brought the installer into an infinite loop
where it kept asking for the disc again and again.
This dialog should have an "Abort" button.
I had to shell out to a different console and manually kill the cdrom
