Thanks a lot!
I'm now installing solaris express 6/06 thanks to your tips.
The device behind the keyboard made the following mistakes
didn't terminate PRTY - now it is.
To boot off cdrom via full path I had to add :f at the end to make it boot.
didn't catch that before
Will try also with block mode on - I tried first with it, but didn't add :f
at the end and the system grunted against me.
Now it's purring like a powerful cat and it's fun to watch it via usb
serial<->null-terminal cable combo.
All the best and happy weekend.
