Well, I've installed it on Netra X1 (Ultra IIe 500MHz, 256k, 512m) just by plugging cd drive to second ide channel.

There were few problems.

Seagate Ultra ATA disk (st340824a) gave me lots of read errors upon first boot after installation. It was fixed by building kernel with DMA disabled and turning it on by hdparm utility as well as downgrading it to use udma 3 mode.

Two on-board network cards (davicom 9102) were detected by tulip driver. They seems to work well but I'm not sure if everything is ok as at boot time kernel complains about PCI memory conflict related to one of those NIC's.

I guess, it could be fixed by PROM settings as it is resposible to initialize all PCI devices. Unfortunately, I'm not very familiar with Sun's equipment. Any advise with that will be highly appreciated.
