Hi adrianmak,

   You can boot straight from the CDROM or the installation
server(if you have one setup). You don't need to worry about the FD (for intel).

  To start the installtion on a Sun box (Ultra 5), trun on
the machine, when you see something on the screen, type in
"<stop> A", then put the installation CD into the CDROM,
type in: boot cdrom, and start the installation. the installation procedure is similar to the intel version.

  When you change hardware on a Sun box, you can use" boot -rv" to reconfigure the kernel.

  Cheers!

Regards

Boot up the systems from the CDROM in single user mode:

 boot cdrom -s

Good luck!
