    Did you check this message out?

    ls -l /cdrom/cdrom0/Solaris_9/Tools/Boot
    lrwxrwxrwx 1 root other 11 Jun 13 15:00 Boot -> ../../../s1

    Boot is symlink to another partition. That other partition is
    a Solaris ufs file system.. Can "Suse" can mount ufs ??? On Solaris
    volmgt takes care of all these details.

    How you solve this on Linux I cannot say but if you can read the slice
    info you can use "dd" to extract the slices I guess and them mount
    them with names setup-install-server expects to see.

    imgslice says for my Solaris 9 disk 1 of 2 update 4:

    CD-ROM Disc for SunOS Solaris Installation
    Slice Nr Starting Blk Nr Nr Blks
    0 0 643840
    1 643840 599040
    2 1242880 5120
    3 1248000 5120
    4 1253120 5120
    5 1258240 5120

    imgslice may compile on Linux if you dont have an equivalent, Google
    for it.

    Seems fairly explanatory to me.....

    The setup-install-server script can't find the files it needs to work on
    in the path it expects them to be. Is it mounted in the right place?
    is it definitely possible to use this with SuSE and expect it to work ok?

    Please use a machine with solaris on it for use as jumpstart server.

    /cdrom is standard the automount-point for a cdrom , so Suse doesn't have
    this .

    It is easier to set up, but not 100% necessary.
     

    It's because Suse hasn't mounted the the Solaris "slice 1" UFS
    filesystem in the right place.

    If the OP can get a solaris machine for a period of time, it might be
    easier to mount the media in it, then transfer the files to the Suse box
    over the network.
