Description of problem:
At our educational institution we use Removable Hard Disk Drives in caddies as there a few classes that utilise the same machines. Two noticable things happen when trying to install to these drives
1. The splash screen shows no "Fedora Core 4" graphic; and
2. After you inform the installer to do a normal graphical install, it hangs when it tries to mount the root filesystem, saying a 'root=' argument needs to be specified.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot from CD/DVD
2. Run installer normally

Actual Results:  Installer crashed before install was initialised.

Expected Results:  anaconda should have run normally.
