Recently, we rebooted the server (was healthy afaict) and it won't come

say SILO and continue booting) and then just gets stuck.
I've got another two systems (Sparc/X1) that are exhibiting the same
behavior. After about 10 or so minutes of waiting near "SI" the console
prints "Program Terminated"
I have configured a netboot server and when using 'boot net' at the ok
prompt, it starts the install process. If I break out of the install
process and try 'Install the SILO boot loader on a hard disk', the
partitioner starts up and I get scared to go anywhere (I dont want to
lose any data here!)
Since I don't really know what else to do, I want to reinstall SILO.
Can someone point me how to do that from a network boot shell? BusyBox
ash loads, but I have no idea how I can use to to reinstall SILO.
.. Or, if anyone has other ideas, i'm desperate.
