We will address this, or if you like. You can follow Alex instruction to 
make your own CD.

One thing I was looking into, but time is always short here, is actually 
when the server boot and load the kernel, to stop the process via the 
console and then disable the SCSI stuff from there.

May be just that easy to get the box to continue to load and then you 
have the full working server, you then can make the changes for good, 
compile a new kernel and be done without the needs for a new CD.

This may well work, but I didn't try it yet.

Thats' a thought however.
