When you say the modules don't get installed, what's the error message
that comes out? As for telling it that it's an Ultra, believe me, the
install systems knows very well that it is working with an ultrasparc :)
No need to tell it anything.

Sounds to me like you are having version skew between the kernel you are
running and the drivers you are trying to install. I'd like to know the
error message before I make any guesses.
