Base System Installation Checklist:
[O] = OK, [E] = Error (please elaborate below), [ ] = didn't try it

Initial boot worked:    [O]
Configure network HW:   [O]
Config network:         [O]
Detect CD:              [E]
Load installer modules: [ ]
Detect hard drives:     [ ]
Partition hard drives:  [ ]
Create file systems:    [ ]
Mount partitions:       [ ]
Install base system:    [ ]
Install boot loader:    [ ]
Reboot:                 [ ]

Workaround: start the installation in expert mode. disable loading the
module 'piix' when probing for modules to detect the CD. Strangely
enough the module appeared on the list of modules for the network

piix still got into the initrd and thus the CD was not accessible after
the boot and thus the CD was not accessible in the installed system.
Luckily for me I did not need the installer at the second boot stage.

The problem seems to also exist in the daily build of 20050223. Both 
in kernel 2.4 and in kernel 2.6 of both builds.
