Booting from CD-ROM

My recent Solaris installation is totally trashed and system gets stuck somewhere in the boot process.  I want to start from scratch.  How can I get it to the ok prompt to boot from cdrom?

Thanks...

Hi!

I don't know exactly how it works over remote connection (telnet)
I will not say that.

Directly from keyboard:
'init 0' - needed to stop OS and enter OBP.
'boot cdrom' - you'll be able to do this only if no restrictions there.

PS: The same from serial connection (if needed).
