Thank you very much for all the reply's to my problem:

 I took the easiest route and found a "Solaris 2.6 Hardware 3/98"  CD which
worked fine.  The original one I was using was an old version of Solaris 2.6

I received lots of good info from people and will use it in the future.

Thanks again!
Original Problem:

I am trying to install Solaris 2.6 on an Ultra 10 and having the following
problem when trying to boot from the install CD

Sun Ultra 5/10 UPA/PCI (Ultra Sparc IIi 440mhz)

Rebooting with command: boot cdrom
Boot device:  /pci@1f,0/pci@1,1/ide@3/cdrom@2,0:f    File and Args:

boot: cannot open kernel/unix
Enter filename [kernel/unix]:

I have tried multiple 2.6 CD's  I can boot fine from a Solaris 8 CD.

Any ideas?
Thanks in advance!!
