I am trying to load Solaris 9 OS and it gives me the following error:

[b]ok, boot cdrom -s
Loading ...
Boot Device: disk File and Args:
Fast Data Access MMU Miss [/b]

I am currently using a burn-copy of Solaris 9/04 on a Sunfire v480 box. Does anybody have any ideas?

you have a bad burn or a flakey drive

the fsat data access mmu miss is equivilent (as i understand it) of giving an "im a sparc box, get that x86 code away from me" type of an error ...

but i could be wrong

I don't know how they do it, but they do.
Sun somehow chooses the most flakey CD/DVD drives.
I'd recommend 1st that you use really good CDR media, and 2nd you burn it at a slow speed (say 4x), then try again.
If that doesn't work you should give the drive a really bad look since it's probably broken.

I put a cd drive from an old powermac in my Ultra2, it works so much better than the original sun cd drive.
