Package: base-installer
Severity: wishlist
The installer tries to mount the first detected cdrom device. If
it fails the installation is aborted. It is not possible to select 
a different cdrom device to install Debian from. 
It is possible to work around this by opening up a virtual console 
on tty2 and mounting it manually on /cdrom.
Possible solutions:
The installer should give the user an option to select the cdrom device
if multiple cdrom devices are found.
And even better solution would be to scan all cdrom drives and mount the
correct device automagically.
Im installing Debian on Sun Fire X4100/X4200 servers through the remote
integrated lights out (ILO) interface. I boot from and mount the Debian 
iso on a virtual cdrom drive (which is presented to the host as an USB
device). Unfortunately the builtin cdrom drive is detected first and
thus the installation fails.
