best A:, thanks to everyone's correct answer.

If you were able to get a cd in the remote machine
you'd do:

cd /cdrom/Solaris_8/Tools
./setup_install_server -b /export/boot
share -F nfs -o ro,anon=0 /cdrom/Solaris_8

./add_install-client server:/cdrom/Solaris_8

this will: enable tftpboot and add some entries
to your /etc/ethers and /etc/bootparams - you
shouldn't have to
edit the files by hand if you get the
add_install_client options right.
You can also do 'man add_install_client' - it's fairly

on client:
boot net
- should go to an interactive install.

that should be about it. you can do this from any
on the same subnet. It really is a 5 minute job to get
up and running...(unlike a full-blown jumpstart :-) )

The advanced installation guide is the best ref for
