    Is your BIOS configured to boot first from CD-ROM?

    No idea about the update 1 images. The 3/05 images burned using cdrecord
    on Linux booted with no problems whatever on two separate machines.

    Perhaps your download was corrupted. Check the md5 hashes of the zipped
    images. These are for the 3/05 release:

    What happens if you put in a Windows, Linux or similar CD - will it boot
    from that?

    If not, then the machine is not trying to boot from CD, but only the
    hard disk.

    Did you burn the CDs correctly as ISO images? Can you read them on
    another system?

    Select "no name service" during installation if you have no local DNS
    server which can resolve your system's hostname.

    After installation copy /etc/nsswitch.dns to /etc/nsswitch.conf and edit
    /etc/resolv.conf to look something like this:

    domain yourdomain.tld
    nameserver 192.168.0.9

    Had you been running a DNS server on your network with the appropriate
    zone records for that host you would not have encountered the problem.

    No idea. I have never put Solaris onto the primary slave IDE drive.

    Google "solaris x86 multiboot" for a possible answer.
