`appears' is vague.
Best be really sure your box can read the installation media.
Use your existing Solaris (or move cdrom drive temporarily to another
host with some Unix) & read the cdrom image to hard disc, something like
dd if=/dev/cdrom bs=2k of=bsd.iso
compare the MD5 with CHECKSUM.MD5
Warning: some cdrom device drivers return 1 x 2048 byte sector too many,
so you may need to trim before md5, with dd count=some_number
