This is what you want to use. Sun expects the boot disk to be SCSI ID 3 (c0t3d0s0) but doesn't have to be. I would try installing the / partition on this disk, say: c0t3d0s0 / 1st partition c0t3d0s1 swap 2nd " c0t3d0s2 whole disk default- can't use c0t3d0s3 /usr 3rd partition c0t3d0s4 /var 4th " Or similar set up > However, I am not sure if it installed a kernel or > not, because when I try to boot, it just freezes somewhere in the > process after loading the kernel image.
