I've been trying to get a Sun sparc machine for myself, with the only
purpose of installing Debian/Linux into it.  I don't know why I should
have it working only with Solaris if I could make it run with Linux.

On another list someone said he had got one sparc station, with no media
in it, and no OS installed.  Anyone knows how could this guy have
Debian installed?  (surely via internet, but as I said there's no system
installed, and no floppy or cd drive).
