scan_partitions is looking for partitions and doesn't know it's a CD.
In my opinion the driver should fail silently if there is no CD in the
drive. However, it doesn't, so we should do something like start
"cat /proc/kmsg >/dev/tty5 &" in /etc/rc so that the user always has
console messages in that window rather than the main window.
