Description of problem:
I have PCMCIA controller for CDROM at "unusual" location
(ide2=0x180,0x386). Boot process works fine until there's a reset of the
pcmcia card(s) found. System hangs. Worked fine under 7.0 and previous
anaconda's that didn't have this 'reset' feature.

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot CDROM
2. watch the screen come up & say 'resetting pcmcia'
3. doom

Actual Results:  3. doom

Expected Results:  Perhaps anaconda might continue to read info from the
CDROM, and continue the boot process.

Additional info:
