The mount doesn't tell me anything: it just hangs while mounting... (and
blocks most of my system while it is 'mounting'). CDROM support is indeed
compiled as a kernel module, no SCSI support(not for the CDROM) nor
emulation. I have SCSI support (sd_mod) for my SANDISK reader
(usb-storage), but that gives no probs at all. 

That's the strange thing: my previous installation (without optimization of
the basic packages) had no problem with it. Kernel configuration is exactly
the same (optimizing for PentiumII cpu in the kernel settings)...
