Problems during install boot FC2 Test 2



I'm desperate to use try this out but I think the ACPI
support built into the install cd is tanking my cdrom
drive after the initial bootup screen.

Everything is fine during the initial kernel loading,
but when my console gets to:

running /sbin/loader

laptop spins up for a moment stops, and then starts up
again indefinately.  The only way I can get around
this is to remove the cdrom drive from the laptop,
which causes the install program to bring up a text
menu asking for my language, keyboard, and source
media.  Unfortunately the computer doesn't recognise
my cdrom drive anymore.

Anyone have any idea why this is happening, or if it
is ACPI's fault.  I'm not sure how to disable ACPI
during GRUB boot, either.

My laptop is a Dell CPI-R 400.
