I remember this being something to do with HAL polling the IDE CD-ROM.
See http://bugs.debian.org/286820 .  To work around it, you can save the
following snippet as /etc/hal/fdi/local_disablecdrom.fdi (I guess you
can name it whatever you want as long as it goes into that directory).
This worked on my iBook G3:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="ISO-8859-1"?>
<deviceinfo version="0.2">
		<match key="block.device" string="/dev/hdb">
			<merge key="storage.media_check_enabled" type="bool">false</merge>

Hope this helps.  Would be nice if this bug was documented somewhere.
