Description of problem:
When installing on a Compaq Presario ML350 with SCSI HDDs and a single IDE
CDROM, the installer can't recognise the installation CDROM in the ide CDROM
drive. Messages saying "unable to identify cdrom format" appear on one of the
virtual consoles. I have tried appending nousb, hda=ide-scsi, ide=nodma, and
even noprobe but all to no avail. Disabling USB in the BIOS also did not help.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Insert Disk 1
2. Power on
3. Choose language, keyboard & then installation media
Actual Results: Unable to locate installation media
Expected Results: Installation should have proceeded

This sounds like either a kernel or hardware issue.

Thanks for the bug report. However, Red Hat no longer maintains this version of
the product. Please upgrade to the latest version and open a new bug if the problem
The Fedora Legacy project (http://fedoralegacy.org/) maintains some older releases,
