Works on an Ultra 60 with 2 cpus.

falcon# uname -a
FreeBSD falcon 9.0-CURRENT FreeBSD 9.0-CURRENT #24 r218643M: Sun Feb 13 10:49:35 CST 2011     root at  sparc64

I did a guided  install via serial console.

after hostname input I saw : 
rm: /tmp/bsdinstall_etc/fstab: No such file or directory

On a different attempt,  I wasn't sure how to exit the LiveCD portion of it and get back into the installer.   I could type sysinstall
to get into sysinstall, but that isn't the same.  I  ended up rebooting.

I configured a static ip and expected 'tab' to get me onto the Netmask line, needed
to use the down error.

Works for me.
