Description of problem:
Installing from Severn boot cd, the kernel detects my hard drive, cdrom, and 
zip drive.  It does a partition check:

Partition check;
hda: /dev/hda1
hdc: lost interrupt
hdc: lost interrupt
hdc: lost interrupt

Only until I put an actual zip cartridge in does the will the installation 
work.  This may be a problem for other removable media detections as well.  

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
severn beta1 install from cd

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Have a zip drive with no media in drive
2. Install Severn off CD
3. viola.
