Description of problem:
I have tekram DC-390 scsi card with two scsi cdroms on Redhat 8.0 box.  When
booting with floppy syslinux to install phoebe , tmscsim module loads, but
installation process can't recognize Redhat phoebe cd in either drive.  cdrom
drives work in same machine; already have Redhat 8.0 loaded and drives read cd
fine under redhat 8.   I tested cd in other machines and the cd is ok all
machines can read it.  

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Phoebe release 15 Feb 2003; earlier phoebe release did same thing

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.boot from floppy 
2.load tmscim module
3. Installation stands still system doesn't recognize redhat cd's

Actual Results:  nothing happens

Expected Results:  drives should have loaded second stage install (anaconda)
