Hi,

I have downloaded the CD image dated 17 april from here:
http://ports.ubuntu.com/ubuntu-ports/dists/dapper/main/installer-sparc/current/images/combined/2.6/mini.iso

I am using a SunFire v240. Booting from the CD image I get this error:

boot: expert
Allocated 8 Megs of memory at 0x40000000 for kernel
Uncompressing image...
Loaded kernel version 2.6.15
Loading initial ramdisk (4017271 bytes at 0x3F802000 phys, 0x40C00000 virt)...
Illegal Instruction
ok

I have file the bug here:
