search in the first CD through following command

find / -name 'setup_install_server' -print

once you find it , go to the directory and execute install server
./setup_install_server

Also, jumpstart for SPARC and x86 are different Smilie. I did a post long time ago, I refer it from time to time. Here you go.

SPARC is pretty much fully automated, x86 has some limitations.

HTH,
