Thank you for the many responses.

rsnyder responded that I could find the SUMMARY at

This web page allows searches of the sun managers archives.

A large number of people were kind enough to resend the SUMMAY

I am still working on the problem. The problems I am having are that the
following devices are different between the creator and non creator version
of the ULTRA 1

The ULTRA1 170 and the Ultra 1 creater has the following differences.

The Ethernet is different le vs hme
The SCSI controller is different
The DMA is different
and the creator graphics card requires special drivers.

When I tried to boot the system it first complained that it could not find
the SCSI driver. I added the scsi and
ethernet drivers from the CDROM and tried again

It complained that it could not find the console driver.
I installed the console driver by mounting the hard drive

mount /dev/dsk/c0t0d0s0 /a
mount /dev/dsk/c0t0d0s6 /a/usr
mount /dev/dsk/c0t0d0s7 /a export/home

pkgadd -d /cdrom/Solaris_2.5 -R /a SUNWffb*

This installed the driver and all the packages related to the creator

I then forced a reconfigure

Now the system hangs. I am still working on it.
