I'm just installing Woody on a SONY VX71P, from the external FireWire
DVD/CD-RW, but with no success yet. When reaching the point
where the install media has to be accessed Linux can't find the
CD drive anymore. The parameters mentioned above don't work
and dmesg on the command line only shows /dev/hda devices.
