FC1 install disk won't boot

I have a HP SCSI CD-R/W attached to a BusLogic BT-958 (Ultra-Wide).  When
I attempt to boot from the FC1 install CD 1, the controller detects that
it is bootable and has no emulation, but then it immediately hangs.

I have no trouble booting the RH8 admin CD (which has floppy emulation),
and I had no trouble installing FC1 on an otherwise identical machine with
an IDE CD-ROM.  This machine currently runs RH9, but I think I did a
network install of that.

I read in the release notes for RHES 3 that they no longer support real
BusLogic controllers, but I did not find anything in the FC1 release notes
about that.  Any solutions?  (I could do a network install here, but I'm
concerned that the CD-R/W won't work after install either.  Can anyone
allay my fears about that?)
