   Thanks for your answers. The solution was installing Solaris 2.6 5/98.
   I have now updated our jumpstart server with that release.

   The original problem was:

we have the problem that solaris 2.6 could not be installed on an
ultra-5 workstation.
The environment:
Jumpstartserver: E450 with Solaris 2.8
On the ultra-5 we must install solaris 2.6 but we get the following errors:
- could not find kernel/unix
   so we entered /platform/sun4u/kernel/unix
- the kernel loads but does not find the modules
  we entered only carriage return
- kernel loads a while and then we receive follwoing error
  krtld: error during initial load/link phase
And we are the open boot again.

The same problem occurs if we try to install with the CD.

What could we do?
