Install Solaris on a T1000

We have a Sun T1000 that was supposed to get used on another project. We don't think it has an os, and it does not have a cd/dvd drive. How do people normally install an os under such circumstances. Also, I need to get it hooked up to a console to see what happens on boot.

All sun SPARC boxes come preloaded with the Solaris OS, unless that machine was altered it will have Solaris 10 installed.

The minimum Solaris release is 6/06 ( downloadable from Sun ) and the normal method for installing a machine with no removable media is jumpstart.

Thanks for the quick response. Do you have a public link to jumpstart documentation?
