Many thanks to those who helped, offered suggestions etc.
They include in the order I received their email replies):
Scott Spencer, Darren Dunham, Rich Teer, Jason Santos, Peter Stokes, 
King Brooke, Casper Dik, Brian ?

The solution I used was to install a 300Mhz cpu, run the solaris 2.6 
installation, patch using the most recent recommended adn y2k patch sets,
install the 450Mhz cpu's and reboot.

Not necessarily elegant, but once I understood I just needed a patch to make
the 450mhz cpu's work, it was straight forward to get there.

Special thanks to Rich Teer who ftp'd the contents of the cd to me, and to
Scott Spencer who actually sent me one of the CD's

Thanks again,
