Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 6903
RedHat 6.1 install does not support Sony DDU220E DVD

This is true for 6.0 as well. The funny thing is that
I can replace the DVD drive with a normal IDE CDROM and
the install works. I then put back the DVD and I can
mount any cdrom and read from it. The problem only exists
during the RedHat install for 6.0 and 6.1. I'm not sure
about prior releases. I did not have the DVD drive then.
When the kernel boots for the install, it detects an
unknown device at hdb, with a pile of funny characters.
As I said, if I install using a true CDROM drive and
replace the CDROM drive after the install the kernel boots
and does properly detect the DVD at hdb.
The problem only occurs during the install.
This issue has been forwarded to a developer for further action.
Try booting with 'hdb=cdrom'.
Closing bug due to lack of activity.
