" Hi there 
" I have Sun Blade 100 (Solaris 8 installed ) and i want to install
" Solaris 10 from CD. After running "boot cdrom" from ok prompt it
" gives:
" Bad magic number in disk label 
" can't open disk label package
" can't open boot device 
" (CD-ROM drive and Solaris CD's were tested, they are OK )
" What should i do?

idle thought - clean the drive's optical head.  i've heard that a
major failure mode of all optical drives is...  dust on the optics.
