This requires kernel support.  The SunPC board, while bearing a processor
and BIOS, does not have any memory (it shares the Sun memory bus), and must
be configured by the kernel, providing a /dev node for the userland software
to use.

Feel free to get the sunpc.o driver module from Solaris and "objdump -d"
it....  8^)
