kernel doesn't boot: install went like:

 {1} ok boot cdrom
 SILO [...]
 Welcome to Debian GNU/Linux etch
 [...] built 20060810
 boot: <enter>
 Allocated 8 Megs of memory at 0x40000000 for kernel
 Loaded kernel version 2.6.16
 Loading initial ramdisk (356[...] bytes at [...] 00 virt)...
 Illegal Instruction
 {1} ok

This behavious is reproducable: I've done it about 3 times.  However, at
one attempt the machine said: "Fast Instruction Access NMU Miss".

The hardware might be wearing out: it's pretty old.  However, it still
_does_ boot a Solaris kernel fine.

So, if others can't reproduce this (while they are able to install),
feel free to close this bugreport.

The machine is a Sun Enterprise 450 (2 X UltraSPARC-II 296 MHz) with
OpenBoot 3.12, 1024 MB memory installed.

We are closing this installation report for one of the following
- it was reported with a pre-lenny version of Debian
- indications in the installation report give the feeling that
  the reported problem waslying in another software, unrelated to
  D-I, which we can't easily identify.
- indications in the installation report suggest that it may have been
  fixed in a more recent version of a D-I component
- it was successful and we forgot closing it..:-)
- it has no information we consider useful

The D-I team is currently in the process of cleaning out the old spool
of installation reports that haven't bene processed yet. 

In case you think that the problem you reported has chances to be
still present, please reiterate your installation test with
a more recent image of D-I, if you're in position of doing this.

You'll find daily builds at
http://www.debian.org/devel/debian-installer. We recommend you choose
the netboot image, in the "daily builds section", then choose to
install "squeeze" when prompted.

If some problems are found, please report them with a new bug sent
against installation-reports.

Many thanks for your understanding and your help improving Debian,
past and present.
