hey, thanks for the reply. the bios is set to boot from CD. the reason i ask about the graphics card is I have Ubuntu on the system already, but in order to boot it, i had to force it to use xvesa over xorg. Also, I know the opensolaris grub menu does have a "graphical" background (a picture instead of just black), so I'm not sure if the card freaks and just drops me to the prompt.
However, I am reading more about the grub prompt to see if i can get it off the ground, I'll keep you posted on how that goes. If you have any other ideas, I'd love to hear them . Thanks again!

it drops me to the shell immediately. after doing some reading of others' problems with this, it seems maybe my cd-drive is affecting it (it's a usb drive, not a normal internal ide, which is having trouble being recognized by grub).
