I have no idea what video cards are in a Sun Blade 100. If it is something 
other than an ATI card, you may need a different parameter. The kernel 
documentation could help.
Pulling the video card or installing over serial console may help too.

Of course, it could also be a completely separate issue.

Note that installing from CD is known to be problematic in SunBlade 
systems. Netbooting works much more reliably.

Sparc is a fringe architecture. That also means that people will often 
have to solve issues themselves, or at least do the work to narrow things 
down themselves.

Cheers,
FJP
