Thanks to the many replies, but the problem seems to be a bad CD-ROM drive 
(see original question below). Among the suggested solutions I tried were:
- stopping / restarting vold
- checking for any processes attempting to access CD
- check for bad/music/non-data CD in drive 

Sun is sending a replacement drive; now I just need to find a time when I 
will be able to swap it....

I have a 250 box running Solaris 2.6 that has a problem with the CD-ROM 
drive. The light on the drive is flashing continuously, but there is no cd 
in the drive.  I've had this happen once before on a different box, and a 
reboot fixed it; however this machine is a 24x7 box and cannot be 
rebooted.  Does anyone have any ideas that I can try?
