Thank you. I would not have found that in a hurry. In my case. the
incorrect soft link was in /target/boot/vmlinuz > vmlinuz-2.2.18pre21

I changed that just before the make boot disk step, and the boot disk
step failed again. when I rebooted, I got an error message that 'the
file just loaded does not appear to be executable' 

So I still have something wrong. In the sun system, is there some type
of flag on a partition to make it bootable, like in an Intel system? How
do I tell if I have it set?  I still do not know if I damaged the
partition table (or it's equivalent) during my first install attempt.
