Possibly stupid question: Did you download the versions intended for SPARC (RISC) chips rather than the standard PC version? Do its release notes indicate support for Sparcstation 5?

CD-rom Swap

Try replacing your cdrom with a newer one if you can. I had this problem 2 days ago on an old Compaq Proliant Server. When i put a new drive in, it went right thru where it was hanging with the old drive. Good luck
