This is the exact same system that I have been attempting to PXE boot
from. Since using CD1 as a mirror didn't work I thought I'd attempt to
check to see if the CD itself worked. It doesn't.

I should note that when I PXE boot using the netinstall kernel and
initrd AND ftp.us.debian.org as a mirror - the sarge install works
flawlessly. See Bug#262043

Now as to the CD hardware its a SAMSUNG SC-140, ATAPI CD/DVD-ROM drive
that's attached via ide-cdrom driver.

I'm a complex person. I have a real and an imaginary part.
