I have an intel system which includes a cdrw driver and a
cdrom driver. When I installed redhat 6.1, I always failed
after all RPM files were copied to hard drive. It reported:
File exists: ..... /dev/+cdname). I guess the problem is
because the installer tried to assign /dev/cdrom to 2
devices. So I disconnected the power of cdrw and then
successfully installed redhat 6.1. After finished, I
reconnected the power and system automatically recognized
this device.

This is resolved in the latest beta installer.
