        My original question:
> Hi, I have a Sparc 5/85 with a new 4GB Seagate drive. I am trying
> to install Solaris 2.6 on it. After the installation is through the
> machine tries to reboot, it stops and gives me this error:
> Bootblk: Can't find the boot program
> Program Terminated.
> What is going on here? Please help! I will summarize

        The what was causing this error was that I was making my root
partition 4GB. It seems that the older systems do not support a root
partition greater than 2GB.
