At the moment, I don't think there are any CDs (or CD images) for sparc
available. What you need to install is the binary-sparc and binary-all
directories from the hamm distribution. Boot disks (and a netboot image)
are in disks-sparc. I've had luck installing by netbooting with a straight
kernel and root on NFS (I don't have a floppy in my sparc).
-- Of course I'm crazy, but that doesn't mean I'm wrong.
