Many thanks for the responses. Special  thanks to Dale Hirchert who pointed
out that the jumpstart directory should be shared out with read permissions
only and not read write. Once I had reloaded the jumpstart directory
everything worked perfectly.

I am trying to jumpstart a box to Solaris8, the initial kernel revision
comes up as 108528-07. Once the box is built /etc/TIMEZONE gives TZ=PST8PDT
even though the sysidcfg file is set as GB-Eire. 
Checking the sysidtool.log in /var/sadm/system it confirms
"set_env_timezone: GB-Eire". Anyone know why this is happening ?
On a separate note the network cards numbers also seem to be incrementing,
what was hme0 on a 2.6 build becomes hme2 on the Solaris8.
Thank you in advance
