I am no longer new to linux, but I am new to Sun Ultra COmputers with the SPARC Process
I downloaded and burned the ISO's for RedHat 9 and Mandrake. I burned them to CDROM
WHen I boot up my Sun, I get a prompt and type "boot cdrom" the comptuer reboots and tries to start from the drom but then reports :
"Bad Magic Number in boot lable"
Can't Open disk lable package
Evaluating: boot cdrom
Can't Open Boot Device"
and then it goes back to a prompt.
Is this a hardware problem or a software problem?
If I am just using the wrong command, what do I need to do to make the computer start the install from the cd? (I looked at the cd on another computer, and I am confused. THe root directory on the cd only had one folder, Mandrake. That folder only had RMPS2 for a folder and in that are all the RPM"s. So do I have to tell the computer to look in that directory somehow?
Thank you for your help
