U60 is a great box to run Debian!
I assume that you're talking about main RAM, not the tiny amount of
nonvolatile memory used to store system configuration.
The needed RAM modules are specific to only a few Sun models. One reference
for the RAM part numbers for Ultra 60's is:

An Ultra 60 has two "UPA" type slots for video cards. Every UPA type video
card I've seen has a 13W3 connector. The UPA cards I have in U60's are
called "Creator" and "Elite".
It should be possible to use certain Sun PCI video cards in Ultra 60's, and
the Sun PCI video card I have (from an Ultra 5; not tried in U60) has HD15.

My last install a couple of weeks ago on an Ultra 5 used a "businesscard" CD
"businesscard" requires that you have a fast internet connection since most of
the required Debian packages are downloaded individually. "netinst" images
have more packages inside the .iso image and need to use the internet less.
