I made bootable Ubuntu USB drive, and it boots fine. I can start
the installer, but when I do, it immediately looks for the CDROM
drive and bails. How do I change that? I tried dropping to a
shell and mount /dev/sda1, but that fails with a mysterious
'invalid argument'.

I'm new to Ubuntu, but I have a lot of experience with Linux.
I'm trying to put Ubuntu on my OQO O2.

Here's an article that explains how to make it quit looking for the
CDROM drive. I have not tried this, because my system will not boot from
USB. I hope this will help.

good luck,

Unfortunately, that didn't help. There's no explicit mention of
what to do about the CDROM drive issue in there. I'd have to
start all over again -- rebuild my image, &c. -- in order to use
that HOWTO. I just want to know how to mount the CDROM drive
myself.

In fact, it appears that other people have had this problem
before:

http://ubuntuforums.org/archive/index.php/t-351009.html

Is the problem that Ubuntu does not have ext2 drivers in the
install kernel? I can't figure this out...
