all 099-mount-cdrom does is:
so if the USB stick is not configured to be mounted as /media/cdrom, then it's
not going to work.
my guess is oded is probably right about it being the same bug (#540990) as the
multiple cdrom drive issue, maybe showing up as cdrom1 or some other device
i've never been able to navigate the relevent debconf databases that we could
actually query the right information during install time, so it's pretty much
guesswork, and will break as soon as something *slightly* unusual is happening.
it wouldn't bee too difficult to configure it to fall back to attempting to
mount additional paths if the first failed, but then you need to coordinate
that with the mirrors used as well.
