I just fell into two old SS1's with SunOS 5.5, and I'd like to get 
something better on them.  However, I don't want to blow the disks away 
just yet, so I was wondering if I could simply install the sparc 
distribution on my Intel box and netboot it.

If the answer to the above is "yes," what file do I need to put in my 
tftp server?  I tried /netbsd, but I get "The file just loaded is 
intended for a different CPU type" on the sun.

I'm really a PC weenie, so any info would be appreciated. :)
