Try and find a copy of an older OpenSolaris release that supports your 
machine I have rev .85 installed on mine. That one is the last one that 
works correctly for older machines.
  I did try with newer revisions but they did fail for me. However some 
are supposed to work with the .115 rev ... what I did is install the 
basic packages and then build the rest
from the Netbsd Pkgsrc. and this works.
