netra X1 tftp boot..and install

Dear all,

I have been using Debian on i386 for a few years now and decided to give it
a go on a Sparc machine. I have sucesfully managed to get my netra X1 to
start from the tftpboot.img file, with the help of a number of How-Tos but I
am at a loss as to what to do next. I presume that I need to use debootstrap
to get the relevant packages from the web, but I don't appear to have any
network functionality now (since booting). 

How do I get the network interface(s) configured so that I can connect to
the web, and how do I install packages to the HDD?

Any help is very much appreciated!
