Dunno, but maybe something to try. I haven't thought of it as I was
in the same situation.

I'll tell you what I've tried and what eventually worked:

Network boot: In the release notes of the patch, this was listed as
possible installation type. I can netboot almost anything here, from
DECstations to SUNs and Alphas, but absolutely nothing worked.

I finally installed Solaris on a spare disk, copied the patch into
the root-fs and booted it from PROM. That worked with my Ultra-2.
