Then try the cdrom drive from one of those other sparcs that it works in.
It may be your cdrom drive doesn't like the burnable media.  I bought a
machine from Dell a few months ago.  Brand new machine.  The CDROM that it
came with refused to boot off a CD that I literally could boot off of on an
other machine I have.  So I used a CDROM from one of those.  Problem solved.

Well, my other sparcs are ss20's. So scsi and ide don’t mix. I highly doubt
that this is a cdrom or cd problem. I had thought before though, that it was
my cds. I tried a different brand, and tried burning at 2x to no avail.
