    Hi just wondering if I have a failed drive here.
    When booting boot cdrom , recieve message "cant open boot device"
    But is detected as device 0 when probe-ide is entered.
    Sunfire 210
    Trying to run the original cd ver8
    Also wont eject via button or eject cdrom says "dont know how"
    MAy somebody please confirm my thoughts as If in a normal pc enviorment
    this would surly mean a faulty drive, but with the Sun I'm Such a Newby

    Thanks
    Sachan
