This recently happened to me when trying to install Ascii on a laptop,
the install went okay until it started asking for the CDROM. I was
installing from a USB device.

I started the install again, but it happened again. It was then, whilst
checking everything, that I found the laptop was not connected to the
network via eth0 and I had been using this for the install (network
install). I fixed this (the plug wasn't fully home) and started again,
this time the install didn't ask for the CDROM and the install
completed successfully.

So, could it be a lack of network connectivity, leading to needing the
CDROM (even though it isn't being installed from CDROM) to complete
the install ??
