As I've also answered to Chris Andrew on this list and in reply to [1], I 
have no problems booting the installer on my own Ultra 10 and all 
releases of the installer are tested on that box.

There are more recent images with a 2.6.16 kernel [2], but I doubt those 
would help you as they also don't work for Chris.

I guess we need to compare machine specs and see where the problem might 
be. See the info I asked from Chris. Using the 20060314 (Beta 2) 
installer, you can still install using a 2.4 kernel (type 'install24' at 
the silo prompt).

Another option would be to try netbooting the installer instead of 
installing from CD.

The best way to report installation problems is to file an installation 
report [3]. But this list may off more help from other Sparc users.
