Thanks for all the responses! After further troubleshooting we determined
that the CD was bad and got a replacement.

Original Question:

I currently have an E4500 which I replaced with two new drives. When I place
the Solaris 8 02/02 Disk software 1 0f 2 in and type: boot cdrom I get the
following messages:

Not a valid elf file

File just loaded does not appear to be executable.

I never saw this before when installing an operating system and am checking
to see if it is a bad cd or drive. Any suggestions??
