Summary: Urgent: Sunfire V880 down

Thanks to the two people that replied, the problem was that Veritas had
changed (or more likely me, inadvertantly) the location of the root dev.
After changing (after lots of experimentation) the boot-device to
disk3:e I managed to boot it.  Oracle is now installed, and I can hand
it over quite happily tomorrow morning.
I then installed the T1 using Solstice DS (which I use in house here)
and configured it all very quickly.  Lesson is, make sure the pre-sales
guy (not me) sells the client software that the engineer (me) knows.
Fortunalty, I'll be doing the Sun based pre-sales from now on.
Thanks to:
