Well, it is also possible to use CD images that other people have
created (assuming that your SUN has good network connectivity and that
it has hard drive space to spare) - if you want to make a CD for
installing a bo (aka 1.3 or 1.3.1) Debian system you can get the
official CD image in any number of places - the www.debian.org site
should tell you where in detail.
If instead you want a CD that can create a hamm (aka 2.0, or at this
point really 2.0-beta, since officially "2.0" doesn't exist yet)
system, you can look at the webpage
http://www.uk.debian.org/debian-cd/cd-images/ , where Phillip Hands
has put his 2.0-beta CD images (I'd suggest only using the 2.0beta1
images on that site, however).
I know this isn't exactly what you asked about, but it may be much
easier to go get someone else's CD image than trying to nudge the
debian-cd scripts into working on a SUN.
