cdrom boot/install problems with Woody on SunBlade100


I'm a Sun hardware newbie making attempt at insalling Woody on a SunBlade 

At the SILO prompt, I have attempted the following:


This gives me a kernel panic
"Kernel panic: I have no root and I want to scream"


This one yields
"Loading initial ramdisk..."
"Fast Data Access MMU Miss"

/boot/sparc64 \
initrd=/disks/woody/main/disks-sparc/current/images-1.44/root.bin \

(I read somewhere that I should try that one.)  It does the same thing as 
the one before:

"Loading initial ramdisk..."
"Fast Data Access MMU Miss"

I understand that tftp is probably prefered or works better, but at this 
point all I have is a cd. 

Anyone out there know the magic bullet?

Thanks in advance,
