mr. hicksd8, as I said I've created icr001.flar archive.

Now its located on my External USB HDD, NFS and FTP as well.

My actions:
1) ok> boot net - install
2) configuring net, dns, etc...
3) reached the “Solaris Interactive Installation” part, and selected “Flash”.
4) trying to recovery via NFS:

Code:
q Flash Archive Addition qqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqq

  Please specify the path to the network file system where the Flash archive
  is located.  For example:

     NFS Location: syrinx:/export/archive.flar

  ============================================================================

            NFS Location: tjk-netshare:/edb4tel/shuhrat/icr001.flar











  ERROR: Could not find archive
qqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqq
     F2_Continue    F5_Cancel    F6_Help

Could not find archive

5) trying to recovery via FTP:

Code:
q Flash Archive Addition qqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqq

  Please specify the FTP server, path, username, and password for the Flash
  Archive.  If you are behind a firewall, enter proxy information. For
  example:

             Host: ftp.sun.com
             Path: /path/to/archive.flar
             Username: bob
             Password: ********
             Proxy Host: firewall.eng
             Proxy Port: 8080

  ============================================================================

              FTP Server: tjk-ftp001
            Path to file: /SOFT/icr001.flar
            FTP Username: ftp_icr001
            FTP Password: ********
              Proxy Host:
              Proxy Port: 0
  ERROR: Could not find archive
qqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqq
     F2_Continue    F5_Cancel    F6_Help

same ERROR: Could not find archive

What else can I do?

ps. there are another methods available:

Code:
q Flash Archive Retrieval Method qqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqq

  On this screen you must select a method to retrieve the Flash archive. The
  retrieval method depends on where the archive is stored.  For example, if
  the archive is stored on a tape, select "Local Tape".

            Available Retrieval Methods
            ========================================
            [X]  HTTP
            [ ]  FTP
            [ ]  NFS
            [ ]  Local File
            [ ]  Local Tape
            [ ]  Local Device








qqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqq
     F2_Continue    F5_Cancel    F6_Help

Thinking about "Local Device" method: But not sure, how to mount external usb HDD, or where do I need to place/locate my icr001.flar image in the internal/local hdd?
