" From: awouk at nilenet.com (Arthur Wouk)
" i screwed up the install of sol 10 on my ultra-2, whose cdrom is dead.
" so i tried to re-install using net install, as per Mike F's instructions
" as of a year ago, posted on the rescue list. [i am running the install from
" a blade 100 called blade.]
" []
" any clue as to what is wrong?

it sounds like maybe tftp wasn't enabled.

in the add_install_client dir there should be a make_install_server
[or similar] script.  did you run that?  i haven't done this since 2.6
but back then you had to do that before you added clients.  it had 2
modes; copy all the files to hd, or just set the services up to refer
to the mounted image [cdrom in that case].
