Please have a look at the Sun NVRAM FAQ. This page helped me to
replace the NVRAM chip (SparcStation 2) and most important to
reprogram the new one. Now I know how to change the Ethernet MAC
to whatever I like :-) May be you find something useful there or
the author can help you.
I can't exactly remember the URL. If I'm right it was something
like squirrel.com and the page was called "Sun Host ID FAQ" or
something like that. av.com or google.com should know this page...
