    There isn't really much here to go on. Did it work before you tried
    to install Solaris 9?

    What happens if you just single user boot the cdrom (cd 1 of 2)

    boot cdrom -s

    Do you get a prompt or does it hang? (give us the output)

    You obviosly can get to the OBP prompt, what does these commands give?

    printenv
    devalias
    banner
    ..version
    probe-ide

    if all looks fine (post it here)

    setenv diag-level max
    setenv diag-switch? true
    setenenv auto-boot? false

    reset

    whats the output?

    This morning I started again trying to install and now the installation
    just went on like it is supposed to.

    Strange, but I've seen this behaviour before, thought then that it was
    the old machine with the little amount of memory that was the problem
    (SS4/64MB), so I was kind of surprised seeing this happen on this new
    machine.

    Thanks for the tips.
