Bug #1454: Unable to boot from external USB DVD drive

Im trying to boot DragonFly live cd(latest build) from an external USB dvd
drive. But Im unable to get past the mountroot prompt. I have a PS/2
keyboard connected to it, but whats weird too is that the keyboard doesnt
work in the mountroot prompt. I tried booting without ACPI and also
without AHCI but I cannot get any further.

This box is a HP Proliant DL180 G5. It came without an internal CD/DVD
drive (which we are still waiting to get).

FreeBSD 7 installer loads fine on this box.

Any ideas?
