You should be able to use the resulting image for tftp booting the sun4.
The problem problem you will have is acceptable userspace. I don't know
of any userspace for sun4. I don't think there's enough people
interested to get it going. I would certainly not like to see Debian use
up 3-4gigs on the mirrors for a sun4 port.

I think you are all on your own for this one. That's ok though, because
building a system from scratch is the greatest way to learn :)
