How to build an install server for Solaris 8?

I need to boot again a server with solaris 8 because I have a problem with the file path_to_install and I have not a CD/DVD driver.

So I'd like to build an install server for executing a boot by network.

Could I use a server with solaris 10?

Many thanks for your suggests

Best Regards at all

You can also try to rebuild the path_to_inst file by booting the machine witch the command boot -war.

If that does not work, you can use Solaris 10 to build a boot and install server for Solaris 8.
