Description of problem:
I have just installed RH9 on my home PC. I have an IDE DVD-ROM drive and a SCSI
cd burner. I put CD1 in the DVD drive and booted off it and started the
installation. Whan it had started copying the files, I put CD2 into the
CD-Burner. When it finished with CD!, it automatically looked ad the burner and
saw CD2 and continued on. However, when it asked for CD3, I put it in the burner
drive and it couldn't find it. I removed CD1 from the CD-ROM drive and left CD3
in the burner and it still couldn't find it. I had to remove CD3 from the burner
and place it back in the CRROM drive to get it to see the CD and continue.

For sure this is only aminor point, but this is the type of thing that Windows
is very good at and people like.

Let me make sure I understand the sequence.

There are 2 CD drives A and B.

1) Boot off disc #1 in CD drive A
2) Insert disc #2 in CD drive B
3) disc #1 completes, anaconda switches automatically to disc #2 in drive B
4) you put disc #3 in drive A
5) when disc #2 finishes then anaconda does not find disc #3 in drive A

This should be better in current releases.
