[rescue] Stupid Solaris Net Install Problem

Gotcha--very similar mechanisms, but without the profiling.
I haven't done net installs without jumpstart, so my only
other suggestion:

Have you done a snoop on the box with the network image
to see what the 'installee' is asking for when it drops
to the OK prompt?

It may be that it's not getting the image mounted--permissions

Can you boot off of a CD on the installee and then mount the
NFS (kind of obviates the need for the net install though).
