Does CentOS actually exist for SPARC?

You can (and should) install Solaris on it. (Trying to go with CenOS  
on this box is bordering the bizarre, IMO).
What specs does your V880 have?

I'm always puzzled why people would go to great lengths just to  
install _favorite_OS on some hardware that is otherwise fully  
supported by _native_OS.
