From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 5.01; Windows NT 5.0)

using the pcmcia boot disk and a "backpack" device disk, installer does 
not recognize backpack cd drive. the regular boot disk does this correctly

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1.boot from pcmcia boot disk
2.boot with "linux dd" at prompt
3.put "backpack" device disk in a proper time
4.note it does not recognize cd driver

Actual Results:  asked "where is install image: nfs, ftp, hard drive"

Expected Results:  asked "ide parallel cd drive" like regular boot disk

We don't support installation to parallel storage devices.
