Installing Debian on a Sun Ultra 2


I have an Ultra 2 with dual 400 MHz CPUs that I'm trying to install
Debian on.  I'm installing from CD (debian-30r1-sparc-binary-1.iso).

The machine boots Linux from CD and starts the install program, but will
not detect the machine's disk.

I get messages (from dmesg) like the following:

scsi0: SparcESP366-HME
esp0: data bad parity
esp0: gross error
esp0: disconnecting

I'm pretty sure the disk is actually working because Solaris is
currently installed and working on the machine.

Any ideas how I can get the installer to see the disk?
