Re: Installation Problem on a Sunblade 100
I downloaded debian-31r3-sparc-netinst.iso and booted from OB with "boot cdrom ide=nodma". The cdrom seams to work. I tried gentoo only to see if the installation routines have a problem. But both distributions criticize the ramdisk as I understand the messages.

To get help I think you should give exact details where you got the
boot disks, what versions etc.
My cdrom died years ago but a method that always works for me is net
boot using tftp
