If I remeber correctly the SS5 expects a reverse arp reply. For that you
need rarpd installed on the same server as your tftp-server. When the
SS5 have gotten the IP-adress over rarp it will request for the bootfile
from the the server which gave the rarp answer. The filename it requests
is it's IP address in hexadecimal.

# cat /etc/ethers
# ls -ld /tftpboot/
lrwxrwxrwx    1 root     root           20 2004-01-18 22:35 0A0A0A63 -> tftpboot.sparc32.img
-rw-r--r--    1 root     root      3798396 2004-01-18 22:22 tftpboot.sparc32.img
