It sounds like your SPARC 10 is running SunOS 4.x. In order to recover
from this, you'll probably need to boot from cdrom, mount the root
filesystem off your disk, and rename the file back to rc.boot. If you
don't have a 4.x CD to boot with, booting a 5.x CD should work too,
since you'll be able to mount your BSD 4.2 filesystem as filesystem type
ufs in 5.x.
