spark and console

Hi All,

I bought a spark desktop on ebay. Can I install solaris 8 without using a physical monitor and keyboard? I mean, just through a serial connection.

Thanks in advance.

I install Solaris via the serial quite often. But not all sparc's can run all versions of Solaris. If the workstation is too old or too new it might not run Solaris 8.
