Yesterday I successfully booted from my modified netinst CD, manually
loaded the sun_esp and esp_scsi modules, and the installer could then
detect the CD-ROM drive.  I could see that drive and the SCSI hard disk
in /proc/scsi/scsi.

As a possibly separate issue, I'm now having trouble getting the
installer to recognize the hard disk.  There are several things I need
to try, including moving that drive to SCSI ID 0.

Do you know when the 2.6.25 switch will occur?
