2.2.7?  Really it says that?  Wow.  That should be 2.2.1 still.

You should be using the 2.2.1-sun4u tftp image, i.e., the one you were
using, dists/stable/main/disks-sparc/current/tftpboot-2.2.1.img .

Can you give more details on your failure?  It is loading the kernel
from the network but immediatelly booting you back to the PROM?
