So i've heard. BTW, the sparc install manual does mention problems
with sparc10/20 in section "5.2 Booting from a CD-ROM":
Note that some problems have been reported on Sun4m (e.g., Sparc 10s
and Sparc 20s) systems booting from CD-ROM.

this sentence is of no help at all (is _my_ problem the one that was all-

But where would i find these "reported" problems? Mailing list, bugtracker?).
