CD images for Sun Fire v210


Both Sarge (sarge-sparc-netinst.iso of 2004-6-7) and Woody
(debian-30r2-sparc-binary-1.iso) fail to bootstrap the kernel
on a Sun Fire v210.

The Sarge netinst CD stops with:

  [ ENTER - Boot install ]   [ Type "expert" - Boot into expert mode ]
  boot: expert
  Allocated 8 Megs of memory at 0x40000000 for kernel
  Uncompressing image...
  Loaded kernel version 2.4.26
  Loading initial ramdisk (1530032 bytes at 0x21F800000 phys, 0x40C00000 virt)...
  Remapping the kernel... done.
and the Woody binary-1 CD stops with:

  [ ENTER - Boot install ]   [ Type "rescue" - Boot into rescue mode ]
  Loading initial ramdisk....
  SC Alert: Host System has Reset
  Fatal Error Reset
  CPU 0000.0000.0000.0000 AFSR 0210.8000.0000.0000 AFAR 0000.07ff.ffc0.4420

Then I turned to this ML and found:

There is talk about an image repository
(http://auric.debian.org/~bcollins/disks-sparc/current/) which seems
dead, and a patch which is probably applied by now.

I've tried to contact Krassimir Tzvetanov, but have gotten no reply yet.

Anyway, any ideas what Debian ISO image to try on the Sun Fire v210,
or should I file a bug report and perhaps try building better images?
