Dear SUN Managers : 
 I really appreciate all the responses I got from so many great people on this list. Most of you got it right. The problem was that the "diag-device" was set to "net". When I changed it to "disk" (setenv diag-device = disk), the timeout problem got solved. Also, I set diag-switch? to "false" as pointed out by David Foster to be the right solution (to keep the system off the diagnostics mode).
I received more than 30 responses. Below are some of the people who answered first (I really do appreciate also others who are not mentioned below) :

 Dear Sun Managers, 
 I was installing Solaris 2.5.1 11/97 (after using the Operating Environment CD) on a 440 MHz U10 and after rebooting the workstation, the following message 
appears always : 
 timeout waiting for ARP/RARP packet 
 I could see that it was trying to boot the U10 off the net , so I tried to force it to boot from disk with the OBP commands : 
 setenv boot-device disk 
 boot disk 
 but still got the same result after rebooting. 
 Please advise as to what could be the problem.
