i installed virtualbox and installed solaris 10 from an iso download. i used 
the flar command to create s10.flar as directed in:
http://hub.opensolaris.org/bin/view/Community+Group+zones/s10brand_dev_guide

i then tried to install s10.flar in the solaris 10 branded zone:

did i skip a step?

How did you create the flar of the s10 system?  Did the s10 system
have a zfs root?  If so, then you must create the flar using an
explicit -L option to specify either a cpio or pax archive.  Otherwise
the flar will actually contain a zfs send stream of the root pool
and that is not suitable for installing a zone (since the zone root must
be a dataset, not a pool).  I recently integrated the following bug fix
to help address this:

6903478 need better error msg for flar made on system with zfs root
