Ok, that's good.

That's why you only have /dev/hda* - that's your ide hard drive, and...

Ack! and that's why /dev/cdroms/cdrom0 doesn't point to anything.

modprobe ide-cd should not fail - can you send me the output?

Try an "/sbin/depmod -ae" as well, if it completes silently, try to load
the ide-cd module again, otherwise, send me that output as well.

Well, sorry, this certainly looks like a problem with the kernel RPM or
the installer.  Compiling ide-cd into the kernel should work around it,
but this is something for us to fix, to be sure.
