hopefully you've had luck by now.   surprising to have anything other than
an easy time since the UE60 (assuming its the same as Ultra-60) has the
same motherboard as the rack-mount R220 (assuming it's the same as 220R).

but if there are other similar models and you're not going from an Ultra-60
to a 220R then there may be other problems.

why not boot to single-user mode and look at the root filesystem while it's
read-only and make sure you can read it.

and since you have the cdrom, if you can put in a scratch disk, install
Solaris7 on the spare disk and make sure that runs before changing stuff
around on the original disk.
