Network install

Hello Everyone,

    I have a bit of a problem. I just want to try out OpenBSD on my
Sparc-5, however I do not
have floppy (however I have a CD-ROM device). I just need to know the
easiest way to install
OpenBSD on my sparc-5. Also, I hadn't planned on buying the CD's until I
tried OpenBSD out
first. I currently have Solaris 8 installed on my sparc-5's HD. I have
looked through the tftp type
install instructions, they quite complex. With said I managed to atleast
get the 'boot.net' image
to boot from the Openprompt on my sparc-5, then I get this error.

>> OpenBSD BOOT 2.1
boot: client IP address
boot: client name: thewave4
Can't open network device
open: bsd; Unknown error: code 72
device [/iommu_(_at_)_0,10000000/sbus_(_at_)_0,10001000/le_(_at_)_5,8400100/le_(_at_)_5,8c00000]:

The is all that happens. I don't know what else to do. If anyone can
help I would
greatly appreciate it. Thank you in advance for your help.

Best regards,

Chris Parman
