IMO, the Debian install is a lot simpler. As I said Debian supports what the
kernel supports, which is any sun4c, sun4m, and sun4d (we also support sun4u,
ultrasparc, with the proper kernel). SPARC Classic is a sun4c, the same cpu
type of the SPARC Station 1 that I have been running Debian on succesfully
(including the latest unstable version of Debian, potato).

Hope this helps,
