Downloaded ISO of SPARC 10 DVD from Oracle site, burnt it and tried to install on SUN Ultra 10 (300 MGz / 256 MB RAM / 80 GB IDE HDD)
Followed the process as specified below:

1. Stop+A to stop the current boot process.(Already SPARC 8 is installed)

2. AT OK prompt typed boot cdrom

3. After some time (3-5 min) prompting error

*"boot device: /pci@1f,0/pci@1,1/ide@3/cdrom@2,0:f  File and args:*_
Panic - Kernel : kmem64 allocation failure+_
Program Terminated+_
ok "+_

Checked in few blogs and burnt another DVD with less writing speed, still same error.

Checked with Sparc 8 CD's, Sparc 5.8 installing without any errors.
