Bug#470423: debian-installer: CDROM drive lockup during multiple CD installation

What exactly do you mean by "cdset was closed"?

Exactly at what stage was this? Was this still during the scanning of the CD 
set, or was it after the installer had asked about participating in the
"popularity contest" and what packages you wanted to install?

Glad that you were able to find a workaround.

Could you please send us the following files from the directory
/var/log/installer on the installed system:
- hardware-summary
- syslog (please gzip this file!)
- status (please gzip this file!)

Thanks in advance,
