This relates specifically to Debian/sparc...
You can get most of the way there following the boot-disk instruction.
The section on TFTP/NFS-root should explain things. The only catch,
however, is that the base system install won't be able to read
resc1440.bin r drv1440.bin as loopback devices aren't supported on NFS
It's not terribly complicated to manually extract their contents but
I've completely forgotten how I did it... and my mirror seems to have
lost everything sparc related (*WTFIRFT*) so I can't recheck.
