Description of problem:
The installer was clearly able to access the dvd player I
needed to use to restore my old filesystem that had been
overwritten, since it was using the same dvd player to self-load
and to get the early rpms.  But the rescue environment somehow
lacked the needed drivers (my old 7.1 rescue disk had stopped
working when I added the DVD player).  I had to use Knoppix and a
Windows DVD burner to restore my environment.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Install off DVD iso
2.Try to access DVD from rescue mode.
3.Don't Profit!

Actual Results:  No driver!

Expected Results:  /dev/sr0

Additional info:

Particularly annoying in concert with the i810 X.org bug that stopped me in 
mid-install, because it vastly raised the recovery effort level.

/dev/sr0 isn't the correct device node, it's /dev/scd0.

Oh, yeah.  

Yep, that the one I was missing.
