I'm straightened out, at least partly.

(Thanks Boris.)

I was trying to go back to NV87 from OS08/05, and I'd switched
everything except the ISO file, which was still the OpenSolaris CD.

Putting that back to the Nevada 87 ISO, I'm now booting into the
install routine as expected.

If history repeats itself I'll get a kernel panic once the OS is
installed and trying to boot into the runtime kernel, but if that
happens I'll start a new thread.

Thanks to everybody who pitched in to iron out my brain.
