I am trying to swap out the existing CDROM to DVD but the connector socket on the DVD drive I bought on ebay which the seller said was for SUN appears to be a few pins wider on the ribbon cable so I am wondering if I can use this drive in the SUN SPARC 5 ULTRA or I have to have some other interface adaptor ?
Also do I need to change the config to get it to boot from DVD rather than CD ? I have fixed the issue or the NVRAM battery and the system boots but I would like to install Solaris 10 which does not appear to be available as and ISO for CD but only for DVD.

The only alternative is to get an ISO for CD somehow. If anyone knows how to convert the DVD ISO to CD (i.e split it) or somewhere I can download the CD version that would be great.

Any help greatly appreciated
