when I try to boot from the first of 3 cd's, by typing "boot cd", I get the following:

cannot open: cd
enter filename [cd]:

Any ideas? I can hear the cd drive spinning, so its not a mechanical problem

i'm guessing you don't have any documentation on how to perform the install, eh? i'm guessing you're running a flavor of unix, Solaris? i'm guesssing that you've browsed the cd for installables/executables? i'm guessing we could us a bit more info.
