Hi. We've got a bunch of SS1s here, and no booting sunos configuration
on any of them. We _can_ get copies of any needed sunos binaries, etc,
and we do have access to a mac running netbsd/mac, but we can't get an
install set for sunos....
what I'm wondering is if it would be possible for me to use the sun
format, mkfs, etc.. programs from macbsd, to install netbsd/sparc on
a disk (using either the sun fs or the bsd 4.3 fs)...
failing that, does anyone have any other suggestions as to how to get
bsd onto one of our sparcs?
and, if it turns out not to be possible, is there anyone out there
who'd install netbsd/sparc onto a hd for us if we sent them the hd?
