I'm not sure if it's available or there. The issue is
more along the lines that it's not loaded at first
boot, so the CD-ROM drive cannot be found.
dmesg shows a message "cannot identify the file format
of the CD". Note: dmesg does not show enumeration of
the SCSI devices or the optical drives.
Further down I get:
chroot: cannot execute /usr/bin/env: No such file or
I then get a RAMDISK prompt and typing in modprobe I
get: "could not parse modules.dep"
I had this same problem with Ubuntu 5.04 . I had to
get someone to send me the LSI FusionMPT SCSI modules
and when the Ubuntu installer choked, I went to a
command prompt, insmod the modules, then told the
installer to go back and search for a CD-ROM.
Note: The CD-ROM/SCSI hardware is fine, Ubuntu is
currently working on this machine (I re-compiled the
kernel and added in support for my SCSI card) and I
have no issues with anything SCSI related.

I guess I will do that. I think that the Kernel needs
to be compiled with the Fusion driver in it so those
machines that have the CD-ROM attached to the SCSI
card can get to the next state of the Live CD.
