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):

How reproducible:

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

Mistakenly marked as duplicate.

This sounds like either a kernel or hardware issue.

May be related to bug 96942.

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, 
and if you believe this bug is interesting to them, please report the problem in
the bug tracker at: http://bugzilla.fedora.us/
