problem installing Sparc linux

I am having a problem installing RedHat 4.2(sparc).  The instalation fails
when I start to install the packages.  I get a watchdog reset and am left
at the ok prompt.  Has anyone else had this problem?  What can I do to fix



1. Sparc linux network install problem!

  I try to install Redhat 5.2 on a Sparc Classic. The disk is formated now
  so it boots from a linux box on the same ethernet with tftpboot.
  The installation program proceeds well until I finish the selection
  of packages to be installed and then it exits with a message that it
  failled to put the ftp server in passive mode.

  I tried with a lot of ftp servers (from the ftp mirror page at but always the same :-(

  Any ideas are welcome...

That's all
