SILO does not work in my SPARCstation IPC

Hello, it's me again. This is another issue. When installing
debian in this machine I replaced the original disk with a 
1GB DEC Model: RZ26L disk. I repartioned and added a SUN 
disk label as shown below:

Expert command (m for help): p

Disk /dev/sda (Sun disk label): 15 heads, 80 sectors, 3597 rpm
1703 cylinders, 2 alternate cylinders, 1931 physical cylinders
5 extra sects/cyl, interleave 0:1
SUN1.0G cyl 1703 alt 2 hd 15 sec 80
Units = cylinders of 1200 * 512 bytes

   Device Flag    Start       End    Blocks   Id  System
/dev/sda1             0      1618    970800   83  Linux native
/dev/sda2  u       1618      1703     51000   82  Linux swap
/dev/sda3             0      1703   1021800    5  Whole disk

My fstab looks like this:

/dev/sda1   /      ext2  defaults,errors=remount-ro   0       1
/dev/sda2   none   swap  sw                           0       0

and silo.conf looks like this:


After rebooting at the 'ok' prompt I get:

I'd like some help in getting it to boot from disk. Thanks.
