 The solution---who'da thunk it, a Microsoft answer.
 First, a HUGE THANK YOU to every person who e-mailed me within minutes of
my call for help, 
 As it turned out :Ultra 10s use IDE drives, the controller can be confused
to a point that it required a power cycle, this is not all that uncommon,
according to our SUN SSE. :)
The solution turned out to be doing a complete powercycle. The
/pci@1f,0/pci@1,1/ide@3/disk@0,0:b was the CDROM was not seeing
the hard drive at all.
Doing a "boot" did not fix the problem...mounting /a and running from the
Solaris CD did no good, everything we tried failed to correct the problem.
Heck I tried every suggestion I received or could get off of google. The
only thing that worked was totally turning the machine off, waiting a few
seconds then turning the box back on. I thought the box would never come
back up. Of, course then I fsck'd the slices and all is well.
 Again, Thank you
ORIGINAL question below: 
> 	I have a SUN U10 running Solaris 2.8. Users attempted to log in &
were getting the following error message when trying to slogin, ftp and
telnet to it. I went to the console and found the following message( or
something like it) on the monitor "out of inodes". 
> 	The box was rebooted (boot -s) and now we get : Boot device:
/pci@1f,0/pci@1,1/ide@3/disk@0,0:b File and args: -s
> 	Can't open boot device
> 	ok
> 	So is the hard drive bad? How do we figure out what to do next?
> 	ALL help is GREATLY appreciated.
> 	Thank you,
