Description of problem:
Installation from cdrom (HP CD-writer+) fails to find an acceptable
driver.  I've tried specifying a few drivers, but the list is long and
none of them are familiar so it seems a waste of time trying them all.
 Plus, I looked on the web and I see that others have also had similar
problems (I think, with both CDROM and hard-disk), so I thought it
best to report this as a bug.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. insert FC2-test2-disc1.iso cdrom
2. reboot
Actual results:
Fails to find a CDROM driver

Expected results:
Finds CDROM driver and proceeds beyond this first baby step

Additional info:
I didn't see this problem with FC2-test1, nor with any of the redhat
versions from 4 to 9 that I've put on this box, nor with Sun Java
Desktop (a repackaged SUSE).  It's an old box, so I'd be pretty
surprised if there _is_ no driver; perhaps somebody forgot to put it
in the list because it's old?

PS. I have _NO_ idea what component to mark this against, but this
system required me to post it against something, so I hope my guess
isn't too wasteful of folks' time.

FC2T3 works fine, however.  I'd propose deleting this bug but I don't imagine I am 
permitted to do so.
