Cannot install linux 6.1 under SparcStation 5

Description of Problem:
I can't install RH 6.1 under SparcStation 5. My configuration is RAM128MB, CDRom from Sun, 2GB Hard disk
Steps to Reproduce:
1. boot cdrom
2. choose installation options (i tried both with custom installation and Gnome workstation)
3. always block during install of glibc package (package #6)
Installation doesn't finish. I also tried to install without terminating the external CDRom i'm using (Sun CDRom) but i've got the same (bad) result
In the past I tried also with a SparcStation 2. I've read the bug about double scsi termination and made several test. There is no chance to get a
working installation for SS5 (and possibly also for SS2) ?
We don't make a product for Sparc anymore, so I'm marking this as "won't fix".
