Hi all,

I have a question regarding netboot on UltraSPARC T1 (T2000). I found already a documentation on a Ubuntu page ( that describes how it is possible to install Ubuntu on a T2000 via network. For that it was used a sparc netboot image with (I think) a special format. But I didn't found any information about the format of this netboot image.
Now my question: how can I build that kind of netboot image? Or where I can find a description to produce that kind of netboot image!

Thanks in advance,
