Umm, Sparc 10s suffer from a prom bug which prevents booting unless the 
partition that /boot is on is contained within the first 1GB of disk.  
SILO detects this when trying to install, and won't install if it's not 
true.  See if your /boot (or / if no /boot) partition is completely 
contained within the first 1GB of disk space.
