I had the same issue with original media from Sun on a V250.  My CD reader 
could not read the second CD on the install.  I had to cancel out of the 
install.  And then boot up into the OS and add the 2nd CD packages 
manually.  What was strange was the OS could read the 2nd cd just fine when 
it was up and running but on the install it choked.
