Yes and PXE booting the node worked just fine.  It was quite some time ago and the process was rather straightforward.  This is for x86_64

use-host-decl-names on;
filename "/solaris/pxegrub";
next-server <TFTP SERVER IP>;
vendor-option-space SUNW;
option SUNW.JumpStart-server "<INSTALLATION SERVER IP>:/exports/Solaris/JUMPSTART/x86";

# BE WARNED: No hostnames. Must use IP addresses for Sol 10 x86!
host canopy {
  option host-name "canopy";
  hardware ethernet <MAC ADDRESS>;
  fixed-address <IP ADDRESS>;
  option SUNW.sysid-config-file-server = "<INSTALLTION SERVER IP>:/exports/Solaris/JUMPSTART/x86";
