    reinstall Solaris 10 onto Ultra 45 fails. (Openboot question?)

      We have an Ultra 45 with Solaris 10 installed on it (one zone, the default one). After changing the IP/YP settings to get it to work in a new location it worked for a while and then failed to boot.

      So I decided to reinstall the OS with a version 10 DVD and CD. In each case "boot cdrom" gets me to the same question in Openboot:

      Enter filename [kernel/sparcv9/unix]

      Preceeded by "cannot find the above file".

      Can someone please help me with how to blank out the filename - so that it will boot the CD/DVD into installation menu?

      Thanks in advance.
