Unable to mount root on 1.2.0 CD

The system boots the LiveCD but then drops me to a mountroot
prompt. I have a LITE-ON LTR-24102B cd rw drive.

The dmesg lists it twice:

acd0: CD-RW <LITE-ON LTR-24102B> at ata1-slave PIO4


cd0: <LITE-ON LTR-24102B 5S0F> Removable CD-ROM SCSI-0

Then it tries a bunch of root mounts using cd9660:foo,
where foo is several different combinations of cd device
identifiers. All of them fail.

Then I try the same thing with all of the cd devices in the
/dev directory on the cd. Nada.

Anyway, I'd like to send the whole dmesg, but I don't see a
way of getting it from my console into an email.
