WAN boot Server issues.

I 'm trying to configure a WAN boot server on Solaris10 x86 for sparc clients ..

when i try to set up the server m getting following error

 ./setup_install_server -w /var/apache2/htdocs/wanboot10/wpath /var/apache2/htdocs/wanboot10/ipath
ERROR: Cannot make WAN boot Image file on this platform
       You must create WAN boot Image file on one of these
       platforms: sun4u

What could be the reason for this ? and how could i resolve this.
