Thank you for your help. I finally have Debian working on this box.
I think what threw me is the instructions kept trying to prompt me to look for the stripped-down netinstall image, when no such image existed for sparc.
It did take a long time to download the entire disk (projected time was 4 hours for the first mirror I tried, on a high speed connection; I found another mirror and got it in 1:30). But at least it worked.
And now that I have woody installed, I'm upgrading to testing.
