What type of PC are you using, CPU, MB, NIC, Graphic card etc?

You need to make sure that your hardware is support by Solaris.

Have a look at the Solaris (Intel) Hardware Compatibility Lists:
http://soldc.sun.com/support/drivers/hcl/index.html

Since the list for Solaris 9 is not yet available, you can pick the hardware from the Solaris 8 list. (it should work for you).

Here's some usefull infor for you to play with Solaris:

It looks like you're having timeouts accessing your HDD(s) both IDE and SCSI (!)
I think the miniroot is being copied to the hdd and doesn't get there!
Run diagnostics to ensure the disk subsystem is okay.
Check that the CDROM media with the Solaris software is okay.
Check that Solaris for Intel supports your IDE/SCSI subsystem (there are some that are a little "dodgy" these days).

Best of luck

Yeah, I've had those very same error messages and everytime SUN has come put and replaced the faulty disk drives (I have a maintenance contract with them).
Of course, you have to go throught the whole telephoen support c**p first.

You might like to try iostat -En and just look for the broken disk to see it's stats.

So replace those broken disks.

No comment has been added lately, so it's time to clean up this TA.
