I would like to thank all managers who responded to my
problem of Sparc20 not rebooting.

As everyone pointed out, I had corrupted the /etc directory.
Vikas pointed me in the right direction when he suggested that the
partitions could be overlapping. Indeed, this was the case
so when I was installing Oracle, it was overwriting the /etc directory.
I managed to reboot off the cdrom, mount /etc from another host and copy
the necessary files.(and relink them).
Thanks again to the following managers for their quick responses
