The other option if you cannot get the CD to boot is to use the
tftpboot.img and do a net boot.  The UltraSparc FAQ does a good job of
explaining how this works.  You will just need another linux box (sparc,
ia32, whatever) attached to the same subnet (maybe same switch?) as the
Ultra 5 you are installing onto...
