Firstly, the sparc port isnt all done - or supported. But it would be 
awesome to get some traction around that and actually get it finished.

The first step is to get the installer images into the machine, and I 
dont think OBP will let you do that. You will need some sort of a local 
network based boot process. The one I use at home is semi-documented here :

I know some of the text is getting cut off on the right side of the 
post, need to do something about that :/ but you should be able to get 
most of the content.

Also, as a matter of interest ( and to document it ) what sort of 
hardware are you installing to ?
