This is neither official documentation nor did I write this. It's also not
the ultimate answer. These instructions just describe one way of setting
up GRUB for netboot.

Please don't assume that everything on the Debian wiki is of official
character. The wiki is a product of contributors from the community and
they don't necessarily know everything when writing such a document.

You are very much invited to help improving this documentation though.

Oracle Linux is compiled for sun4v, so lots of classical 64-bit SPARC
machines are not usable.
