can you answer the three questions as I asked them?

If there is something on the screen please type it in exactly as it is shown.

Do you have both an "install" disk and a "disk 1" disk?

Try the install disk.

the best thing to do is to use a seriell cable to your ultra 5 and to work with a terminalsoftware. if you do so, you can post the whole output of your seriell session. that will make the troubleshooting much easier fo all of us!
