[rescue] Installing Sol 8 on SS5

Okay, I finally got my other SS5 (one with 64MB of RAM in it).
It came with Linux installed, but I didn't even bother to check it out and went
straight to installing Solaris 8. Unfortunately, since it wanted a 512MB swap file or
larger to do the install, I ended up using a Micropolis 3.6GB drive intended as an
upgrade for my webserver. So I format it and partition it (almost 3 hours of time), and
then I get connected command errors. What is going on?
Now I'm installing Solaris 7 because I wasted so much time with 8, and Sol 7 is going
smoothly, nothing wrong so far. Any suggestions? I was hoping it'd be something
new to try, and noticed there's more programs on sunfreeware.com for Solaris 8.
