A) Solaris is not even remotely CentOS

B) Last time I did network installs of Solaris (which was Solaris 9 and 
10), it used a completely different setup, involving a RARP server 
(reverse ARP) rather then DHCP/bootp, and a bootparamd(?) server to 
specify the configuration, instead of DHCP PXE options.   It then used 
tftp and NFS to fetch the boot image and OS installation stuff, per the 
recipe in bootparamd.   Look up documentation on Solaris Jumpstart for 
the specifics.   Setup correctly, its completely hands off, and was 
designed to support diskless workstations.
