That's really strange.  The reason I say this is because I've
successfully installed Deb 2.0 via CDROM setup as Master on the
Secondary IDE channel (/dev/hdc).  In addition, I haven't had any
problems mounting and unmounting it when needed.  I'm using an older
CDROM (4X Mitsumi - I think), but that really shouldn't matter (unless
you've got a pre-ATAPI CDROM).  Do you think it might have something
to do with your motherboard?
