install does not work on sony vaio notebooks

User-Agent: Mozilla/4.76 [de] (X11; U; Linux 2.2.17-14 i686)
Installation on a Sony Vaio Z600REK (all R600 seiries) does not work. The
notebook has a USB floppy and a pcmcia-cdrom. Neither the floppy nor the
cdrom install works.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Booting with no lilo-parameter results in not finding the cdrom.
2. Booting with lilo-parameter "linux ide2=0x180, 0x386" worked in RH 7.0.
3. In RH 7.1 (with the params for 2.) the cdrom got also found, but after
that the machine freezes in textmode.
4. It seems that it freezes right after the pcmcia stuff got loaded (after
it beeped;-) )
Actual Results: Machine freezes in textmode and nothing else happens
Expected Results: The installation should continue as known with standard
Would be even nicer to not insert the above params by hand...
Does your Sony laptop work ewt?
pcmcia cdrom's didn't work in fisher, should be fine in wolverine. my sony vaio
cd does work fine in a different laptop; I haven't tried it in the sony (it
didn't work at all w/ fisher)
I installed Wolverine on my Vaio, just works fine now!
