RE: Sparc Classic and not boot Linux

How did you create the boot floppy?  Did you copy the file to the disk, or
did you write the file directly to the disk?  (Did you use cp or did you do
use dd?)  What happened when you tried to boot from the CDROM?  Unless you
made your own CDs, the ISO images are bootable.

>From the looks of the message, it looks like you copied the file to the
disk, without using either dd under Solaris (or other unix) or rawrite under
