I've got a Sparcstation 1+ which came diskless, and I worked out how to set
up a hard drive for it (it now has one internal and one external running
Soalris 2.3). If you can find a compatible SCSI CD-ROM drive (must be able
to be set to 512-byte blocks, like a Toshiba or Plextor) and Solaris media
(pre Solaris 8 for that architecture) it's easy to set up. Otherwise, try
Linux or BSD.

I can't offer much help over the next week or so as I'll be out of email
range :-( but happy to help when I get back.
