from the release notes: 
The kernel in Alpha 6 is unable to access CD-ROM devices in some
configurations, which means some users who were previously able to
install Ubuntu will not be able to install this alpha from CD media. As
a workaround, users can boot the installer with the additional
"all_generic_ide" boot option. [WWW]
