I tried that. I just a fresh install and left the disk as is from when
fdisk made the Sun Disk Label.
/dev/hda3 whole disk
I go through the whole handbook without issue and then when i
configure silo I get this error.

side note I tried Ubuntu Sparc 6.06 that I found and it installed fine
and ran fine on the machine but I didn't like it so tried gentoo
