Yeah, I had exactly the same Problem.
The Problem is: the Loki Installer seems not to recognize devices
mounted with supermount.

So, the solution is:
edit /etc/fstab as root with your favourite ASCII-Editor
Comment out the line that says something like
"none /mnt/cdrom supermount
dev=/dev/hdc,fs=auto,ro,--,iocharset=iso8859-15,codepage=850,umask=0 0
0" (Comments are a '#' at the beginning of the line)
Add a new line like
"/dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom auto users,ro,noauto 0 0"
Save, exit and mount the cdrom manually (e.g. "mount /mnt/cdrom")
That worked for me. Of course supermount is deactivated then, so you
have to mount cdroms manually. Uncomment the supermount line and remove
the added line to get supermount back working.

Enter "man mount" or "man fstab" at the console to get more info about
the /etc/fstab file.

Hope that helped,
