FS#34 - Booting from Firewire DVD-Recorder not possible.

The live cd does not boot from a firewire dvd-recorder; at least not the one which came with my Acer Travelmate 3012wtmi.

Both Debian and Ubuntu boot with no problem at all (Debian used to have the same problem before, though) and in Gentoo, it works when the “doscsi” kernel argument is passed. I have not successfully booted Elive with this drive, however.

I don not think this will be a problem very hard to fix; it just needs to be detected ;).

I will try the latest Elive as well (downloading now) and report, but I don not expect it to work, since this bug is not mentioned on the “Fixed Bugs” list.
