I started with his blog.  The machine's boot processing does appear to start.  
But I get this error

        Trying cdrom:f...
        Open isn't unique

So I am asking if anyone has had any success with Solaris 8 install CD/DVDs and 
SPARC 64 set-up.

While I have built some Slackware Linux and Microsoft Windows-XP
virtual machines (VM) under AQEMU and QEMU using the latest code I
have not had any success boot the Solaris 8 Install CD/DVD so I can
create a working VM for some special testing.

So has anyone been successful in booting the Solaris 8 Install
CD/DVDs with AQEMU and QEMU?  I am trying to create a VM that would
be the equivalent of the old Sun Microsystems Blade 100/150 that run
at 500 and 650 MHZ.

So far I have not found anything on the web sites except successes
with the old Sparc 32 processors.

Thanks in Advance, Donald R Laster Jr. --
