I'm able to install Squeeze via OpenBoot and it works with the netboot (DHCP/TFTP/NFS) Image for SPARC. Under SPARC (Sunfire v245) I installed the FAI-Quickstart, copied /etc/fai to /etc/fai-sparc, changed several pathes inside the config and called "make-fai-nfsroot -v -C /etc/fai-sparc" and copied all files (/etc/fai-sparc + /srv/fai-sparc) to my X86 Squeeze box.

cp: cannot stat `/srv/fai-sparc/nfsroot/live/filesystem.dir/boot/vmlinu?-*': No such file or directory
cp: cannot stat `/srv/fai-sparc/nfsroot/live/filesystem.dir/boot/initrd.img-*': No such file or directory
DHCP environment prepared. If you want to use it, you have to enable the dhcpd and the tftp-hpa daemon.
ERROR: No initrd installed.

it seems, that there was no kernel package installed.
