This looks more like a hardware error. But for sure you don't need the extension - install if you are booting from cdrom. That extension is only used, if you install from a jumpstart server to do an unattended installation.

What kind of hardware are you using?

hmmm your hardware is seem old ( Sun Workstation ) ?
maybe you should to replace or reprogramming ( if it possible ) your Nvram chip.

Quote:
The contents of the NVRAM chip can become corrupted for a variety of reasons, most commonly, failure of the embedded battery. The battery embedded in the NVRAM chip keeps the clock running when the machine is off and also maintains important system configuration information. This FAQ tells you how to reprogram your NVRAM chip and where to buy a new one, should you need to replace your current NVRAM chip. If you have one of the questions marked (Replace Chip), you'll need to purchase a new NVRAM chip. The cost is about US$20. For the other questions, as long as your machine retains its hostid and ethernet address when turned off, and the clock keeps time when the machine is turned off, reprogramming your NVRAM chip is enough.
Quote:
One question is marked (Probably Replace Chip). Usually, when the NVRAM gets corrupted in this way, this is a symptom that the battery embedded in the NVRAM chip has run out and you need to replace the chip. If the machine is relatively new, you should try reprogramming the NVRAM chip with a hostid and ethernet address using the instructions below, then do a reset at the "ok" prompt to make sure the banner looks as expected. Next turn the machine off for a couple of minutes and turn it on again. If the machine retains its hostid and ethernet address, then you probably don't need to replace the NVRAM chip.

Hi hadimotamedi,

i m not sure where is the NVRAM chip part number writes in another than motherboard..
i cannt find the any related nvram part no information about your system.

maybe ( if there is ) u can check the product/system documents ( like invoice , manuals , sys dump docs .. ) that came with the your powerbook computer.

but of course the most guarantee way to look on the the motherboard.
because you already will have to open the powerbook shelf/case when you buy a new nvram chip Linux

otherwise i can only walk the idea from your system's cpu arct.
your system has ( Ultra SPARC IIe/IIi ) ? is it correct ?
if it is ok , i just can guess this compatible nvram chips for your system.

so it is maybe "525-1417, M48T59-70PC1" chip ?
i use this reference site.
IDPROM - Parts

if it is this , then you can find the related products..
for exa :
525-1417, M48T59-70PC1, Sun NVRAM for Ultra 2 (M48T59-70PC1), Sun Microsystems Products
525-1417 IDPROM (NVRAM) For Sun Ultra 2 Workstation New Battery 1 Year Warranty | eBay

if you can be sure somehowly , you can find more alternative shopping sites with different prices..


good lucks
regards
