Hmm...  I think the only way to boot Sparcs is by using
rarp and bootparamd.
Therefore, on your bootserver install rarpd, bootparamd, tftpd and nfsd.
Compile a sparc kernel with autoconfig and nfsroot enabled in the
network options. Then make it so that the tftp request finds the kernel.
(i.e. arrange a symlink in /tftpboot )
