I am attempting to install Debian Linux on a Sparc Ultra5. For my own
convenience I'm using netboot over TFTP images to install this

partitioning the disks I have available.
I don't know to what extent this will help, but the one thing I can say
is that I've got Lenny running reliably on a U10 installed from CD. I
think that the hardware's very similar to what's in a U5, but I can't
check at the moment due to pressure of other commitments.
I do have a vague recollection that on some systems I had to set the
disc up in another machine, but I don't think it was a U10.
