It's the syslog on the guest. I was using an iso image for installation, 
and later removed the virtual CD Rom drive. So the point is that the 
guest system doesn't have a CD-Rom drive anymore, but debian believes 
it's still there. The question is how to tell debian there is no cd rom 
drive any more...
