hm, have you checked the md5sum?
are you sure its the right version (sparc/x86)?
it happens that some BIOS/DVD drives cannot boot from DVD but do boot from CD. I had such problem.
so, to be sure, try some other bootable DVD, like Linux.
If that's the case, you can boot from first Solaris CD, and when grub menu appears, swap cd with dvd. that worked for me on x86.
