I didn't got any responses from the list, but I had managed to solve
the problem myself.
I booted machine from CD-ROM, made fsck on my solaris partition and
mounted it on /mnt. After that I found that /platform/i86/kernel/drv
directory is missing (to be more precise, it was moved to lost+found,
probably by fsck after one of the kernel panics). KD apeared to be
one of device drivers in /platform/i86/kernel/drv directory. Becose
there were some more system directories in lost+found and there was
also some wired stuff there, I decided to restore entire system from
backup. In short, I booted from CD-ROM, got networking running,
copyed recover program (part of networker packege) to /tmp directory,
newfs solaris partition (on this machine I have everything on one
partition -- not a wise thing to do, but anyway), mounted it and
restored everything from last night backup. After that I rebooted
machine and everything works fine now.
And finaly, here is the original question:
