Everything seemed to be going fine until the Detect and mount CD-ROM
step. I get the message "No common CD-ROM drive was detected". I'm
trying to boot with a Pioneer DVR-111D Dual Layer DVD±RW Writer.

When I try to boot with "expert" as a boot parameter, the installer
wants me to load the floppy module. I don't have floppy drive.

Knoppix 4.0.2 boots and operates perfectly.
