I have to install SLES9.3 distributive which is of 9 CDs as HVM domU.

Having their ISO images ready, I hardly found a document describing the exact 
procedure of changing virtual CDs when installing the OS:


It really helps. But a strange effect of not recognizing every CD from the 
first time is noticed. The installation kernel says (in its Ctrl-Alt-F4 window, 
i.e. "dmesg" or kernel log):

kernel: cdrom: open failed.

last message repeated 17 times

Accordingly I had to click OK in the Linux installation menu several times 
before a "CD" could be read. Imagine thist 9 CDs where asked to be changed some 
30 (! I do not know why so much) times and every time I had to click OK from 1 
to 10 times :((

Is it something wrong in the environment which makes CD-images not to be read 
from the first time?

If not, which is the proper, XEN-approved procedure of changing CD iso images?

Environment: XEN3.1, SUN X4600, SLES9.3-64bit as dom0
