Sun Blade 100


I've been trying to install any secure version of Linux onto a Sun Blade 100 running Solaris 8. I've recently upgraded its open boot prompt to 4.10.3. it's POST version is 2.0.1. I've downloaded and burned a set of Debian Linux CDs version 3.01. As far as I can tell I can only install from CDs because I am working a lab and can not set up a RARP server so I can't do TFTP boot. After inserting the CD and typing `boot cdrom` I get it to boot up the installer, but when I try to install I get the message:

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

then I'm back to the ok prompt. Does anyone have any idea where I can get a copy of Debian CDs that will boot install Debian onto my machine. I don't even need anything as fancy as a dual boot, I just want to wipe the machine I've currently got and install Linux. Thanks.


p.s. From what I can tell on the web Debian is probably the best way to go in terms of getting linux on my box, but if I can't and someone knows another version of linux that might work I would gladly try that as well. Thanks again.
