First take a look on your Amiga at the NetBSD man page: diskless.8
The NetBSD/amiga system has all the above mentioned programs (yes
you need them all).  The only SunOS program you need to copy onto
the Amiga is /usr/kvm/stand/boot.sun3 which gets installed into
/tftpboot/boot.sun3 with a link as described in diskless.8

Let me know if you find the man page insufficient.
