Hmmm. What I have here is (which matches the primary site):

lump:/export/potator4$ ls -al *sparc*
-rw-r--r--    1 steve    users    660592640 Dec 19 16:15  binary-sparc-1_NONUS.iso
-rw-r--r--    1 steve    users       109115 Dec 19 16:15  binary-sparc-1_NONUS.list

How did you get the image? It either looks like it's been corrupted,
or you did a pseudo-image run and forgot to rsync it afterwards.
