Hm, can you be a bit more clear here? Is this still during the initial
anaconda stage where it is reading the install.img from the CD-ROM? If that is
the case, I might suggest that instead of increasing the timeout, we also
monitor the CD device for activity. That is, if either the diskimage or the
CD-ROM has activity, we continue waiting.
but i was thinking if is not a bit smarter instead of monitor the CDROM or such stuff, to
have an Observer of the installation progress somehow. In that way, you should not be
worried to change the timeout, since it is auto driven.
