I meant the target CDROM-_drive_. You mentioned you could get another 
 OS installed, so maybe it's possible verifying the md5sum on the target 

Otherwise, I remember something about "old" sparc-CDROM-drives needing 
 a sector size of 512 bytes. I don't have any working drive which can 
 do that, so it's only a _very_ wild guess.

BTW, if you have another computer on the LAN, you could give 
 net-installing a try. The details are mentioned in the docs.
