Booting?

About SplackI\'m trying to install Splack8 on an Enterprise 250. Now this machine lacks a floppy drive, and i have no other machine to do the mkisofs thingy on, so what should i do to boot the installation?

Ultrasparc machines cannot boot from floppy.
You have 2 choices, either set up a tftpboot server and install over your local network or get someone to cut a CD for you.

Any *nix machine can be used as a tftpboot server.
