mount all partitions of solaris installation software CD 1/2 manually

Hi all,

I am having a problem mounting all partitions of a Solaris software CD, Cd 1/2.  I am on a x86 machine with Solaris 9.  There is no x-windows on it and vold is turned off.

I know there are 5 partitions on a Solaris software Cd (s0, s1, s2,s3,s4,s5).  This is ture for both Solaris 8 and 9.  If I just throw this CD into a system that has vold on, I will get all the contents automatically loaded to /cdrom/cdrom0.  But if I do the following, I only get what's under s0 (Copyright+Solaris_8)

# mount -F hsfs /dev/dsk/c0t1d0s0 /cdrom

I tried to do the following to mount s1, but failed with the following error message:
# mount -F ufs /dev/dsk/c0t1d0s1 /cdrom
mount: /dev/dsk/c0t1d0s1 write-protected


I am trying to build a jumpstart server on this machine, and need to have access to s1 to setup the OS image.  Please help!  Thanks a lot in advance.

Are you sure that your cdrom is on target 1 (c0t1d0s0), usualy cdrom is on target 6 (c0t6d0s0)?
