I tried booting via diskette, but no luck there, either. I dd the 
 images on an i386-box, but the sparc doesn´t recognize them ("drive 
 reports track 2 when reading track 0"). I don´t have a spare 
 SCSI-cdrom, so installing via CD isn´t an option for me. It seems that 
 I´ll have to somehow copy with TFTP.

Are there older, thus smaller, tftpboot-images available anywhere? I´d 
 be happy just to get something to run on the box from where I could 
 then upgrade..

Any advice would be greatly appreciated!

cheers+tia,
