Starting CDlinux ...
Populating /dev ...
Configuring CDlinux ...
Detecting (S)ATA-Raid ...
Installing extra PKGs and MDs ....
Wait 8s for devices to get ready ..
Can't find out where CDlinux is installed
Updating system data
setting up lang/locale
loading kernel modules
Starting services/daemons
mounting local filesystems

Welcome to CD Linux
Press enter to activate this console (after I press enter I get)
0 root@CDlinux:~#

After that, the scanner doesn't run. It looks like it's waiting for me to enter some sort of command. Any suggestions as to how to proceed? Thanks.
