I have a sparc10 I want to run Linux on.  I need to load Linux on the unit and the unit tries to boot from Ethernet.  How can I disable that?

I keep getting the following error message:

Timeout waiting for ARP/RARP packet

I can use arp to provide an address, but I need to boot from the hdd to see if Solaris is loaded.  Hoe do I tell the system to boot from the drive not Ethernet.  I'm not using video, I'm using serial console.
