Description of problem:
Trying to install RH 8.0 on a Toshiba Portege 3440ct booting from a usb-floppy
drive and with a pcmcia connected cdrom the booting starts
ok, but after answering the questions about language during installation 
and keybord the install program offers only a hard drive installation
(asking for  the partition on which the images/packages are located).

Notice, the very same installation procedure worked no problem for
RH 7.3.  I have tried also with a downloaded pcmcia.img and verified
the problem is not due to a particualar problem with the pcmcia.img 
copied from the cd-set.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
pcmcia.img from RH8.0 cd1

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Reboot laptop with pcmcia.img in usb-floppy drive and rh cd 1 in pcmcia cdrom
2.Answer install questions (graphics/text, language, keybord)
3.Program asks for partition on harddisk with install software.

Actual Results:  Installation had to stop.

Expected Results:  Boot program should either identify the pcmcia cdrom itself
or ask
for the pcmciadd.img. (pcmcia.img offering a harddrive install is
