yes, it could be. but that does not necessarily mean, that the installer
can't talk to it. you have to load the correct driver module by hand
(don't ask me how, i don't know debian). and don't expect the driver to be
/dev/hdx - these are only ide drives. it could be something like
/dev/sbpcd or /dev/mitsumicd or something like that (the driver will give
you probably *some* hint, when loaded).
