Bug#430388: isofs bug in "etch" netinstall CDROM image

Package: netinstall CDROM image
Version: "etch"
Platform: Sparc sun4m SPARCStation20

When attempting to use the netinstall CD image I
consistently get to the point where it tries to mount
the installation media to install the base programs
necessary for network package download but the mount
fails with:

isofs_fill_super: bread failed, dev=sr0,
iso_blknum=16, block=16

in the system log.  The installation screen assumes
that the CD is not in the drive.

The CD is readable by a Debian-3 installation that
also exists on the target machine...so, I can only
assume that the Debian-4 installation process (isofs
driver) is buggy.

Multiple copies of the CDROM (burned at low speed)
fail at that same point.

CDROM: ancient SUN SCSI external CDROM drive.

Also, trying to manually mount the media with

mount -t isofs -o ro /dev/sr0 /cdrom

fails with "Device not found" error...Drop the -t
isofs and it errors with the iso_fill_super: error
mentioned above.
