You have to turn off atapi-cd-dma-enabled at the initial solaris
grub boot prompt like:

hit "e" on the primary solaris install

add ",-B atapi-cd-dma-enabled=0" to the line
then hit "b" to boot.

That should get you a working install.

Just use the ITU from Juergen.  I've installed solaris express b39
and used the ni driver from the ITU and ti works like a champ.
(Juergen modified Murayama's ni (ne2000) driver to work correctly
with qemu).
