I'm not sure, but our wiki [1] might have some information for you:

  [1 Aug 05] sparc netboot image needs to be passed ramdisk_size=16000
             to boot properly

I've also tried to install the daily netboot image (20050804) on an
Ultra5, but it hangs when trying to mount the cd (after asking
questions about language, location, keyboard setup and hardware
detection. A known bug?
