This is what is says:

#  size       offset     fstype
a: 1639008    0          4.2BSD
b: 1049328    1639008    4.2BSD
c: 78165360   0          4.2BSD
d: 75477024   2688336    4.2BSD

/dev/wd0a would be mounted / it's large enough to contain /usr, and 
/dev/wd0d would be mounted /home
I accepted the default offset values given to me by sysinstall, on PCs 
the first 63 sectors at the start of a disk are reserved for boot 
loader. Could this be a problem in Sparc? I have to run to Uni now, but 
I'll try reserving 63 sectors and reinstalling from scratch.
