that's not all of your problem: you cannot *reboot* the sucker.
(i've had a similar problem with my ss1+)

see <URL:http://www.ultralinux.org/faq.html#q_5_39>,
setting sunmon-compat? to false helped me with my ss1+.

that's another problem, not related to the warmboot-issue.

try probe-scsi on the prom-prompt, does it tell
you about your disk? what does printenv say? boot-device set to the
same (id,lun,slice)-triple as it should be?
which disk(s) did you install linux on? check the boot output of the
kernel on the cdrom for hints.
