It's been a while since I had to play around with a non-booting sparc,
but in the past the problem was an incompatibility between obp and
silo when booting from cd. I found that the best way for *me* was to
dig out my old Gentoo 1.4 cd, although I believe the 2005.0 disc
worked as well. On all the machines that refused to boot with the 2006
discs, they worked with one of those older ones.
Or, netboot always worked as well.
