By the way, I have observed that even when installing with the latest disk 
set, there are problems mounting IDE CD drives attached to sound cards.  The 
problem seems to be related with the base disks not having the approprite /dev 
files (/dev/hde and /dev/hdf, I guess).  This point should be fixed before 1.3 
is released, for the IDE CD + sound card configuration is very popular
