SUMMARY: Sun4c Boot block for Solaris 2.4

Well I thank everyone for there responses. No one came up with
a correct solution so in desperation I did this.

The problem was that I needed a sun4c boot block and
/usr/lib/fs/ufs/bootblk is a sun4m boot block. We have
a SS2 that was built directly off of CDROM that was
running fine. (Which tells me that there must be a stupid
sun4c boot block hanging around somewhere but I still never
found it.) Soooo, I used dd to extract the boot block off of
the SS2 and then used installboot to put it on the SS1+

The exact command to do this was

dd if=/dev/rdsk/c0t1d0s0 bs=1b iseek=1 count=15 conv=sync of=sun4cbootblk

and then just installboot using sun4cbootblk as the boot block.

If anyone out there needs a sun4c Solaris boot block and can't find it
I would be glad to send them mine.
