There's a way big difference in 32 vs 64 bit, (the kernel is 64 bit) so
upgrading a Wheezy 32 to Sid 64, will that flow?

So the question is, what are the packages needed to do a minimal
install. And are these build (and ready for use) on sparc64?

If so, we can create Netboot image. And boot it from network, true?
