installation problems on laptop


I'm trying to install Solaris 9 on my Presario 2140us laptop. It gets stuck in the "Bus Enumeration" part early on. I tried choosing "Selected Scan" with similar results. I've tried using both the installation CD and the 1st software CD.

Thank you.

i've already seen this page, thank you, jilliagre.
solaris seems to be the most quirky when it comes to installing on a laptop (i have slackware, windows xp, and open bsd on this machine).
