Quick SUMMARY (Problems booting from remote CDROM) and new Q

Thanks to Swee-Chuan Khoo, who pointed out that I probably hadn't set the
correct netmask in /etc/netmasks:

        I'm trying to upgrade a Sun 4/110 to SunOS 4.1.3_U1 (ok, so it's
        really <shudder> Solaris, but...) from a SPARCClassic running
        Solaris 1.1.1B. The Sun4's arp seems to work (I get the correct
        address back for the client), but then I see
                Requesting Ethernet address for xxx.xxx.0.xxx

        Since the host machine isn't on subnet 0, this doesn't work too

        What's misconfigured? The host machine's ifconfig gives the correct
        address (with subnet). rarpd run in debug mode on the host reports
        the correct subnet too. Does the boot command permit subnet

Now for the new question: having happily gotten the miniroot onto sd0b,
when I attempt to reboot (reboot "'/usr/kvm/unixname2bootname sd0b' -sw"),
the reboot starts, but then I get

  Memory Error at Virtual Address 0xB6DBA000

  Watchdog reset

Am I hosed? The client sun4 has 16MB RAM - the client swap is configured
at 16MB as well. I formatted the disk before starting - it reported no

It's not possible to boot a 4/110 from an attached Sun CDROM drive, is it?

Thanks for any help.
