Hummm, I doubt that CD drives would fail on both machines, and I tried
also an external USB attached CD drive :)

That's something to do with the architecture of the machine, for
sure. When I installed R71.1 i386+PAE, I had to disable fdc from the
kernel (and few other devices) before it would boot. But I obviously
cannot disable fdc from the boot CD :)
