Hi managers,

I received some sugestions about my problem, thanks to Dave Harrington,
Jim Roy, Tim Carlson, Carlo Musante, Bruce Bowler. Bruce had the same
problem and it was related to a bad CD drive, i am trying to replace my
CD drive. But Ive done more tests and an Solaris 7 beta refresh CD
works beautifully in the same machine. Beta works, release wont.

I would appreciate any more sugestions and thanks for your time,
