    linux image.

    Remote boot would use bootp and tftp, for certain.

    Remote installation could use manual, bootp, or dhcp for address
    assignment, depending on the installer for the particular distro.

    Content transfer typically uses nfs, ftp, http, or smb, again depending
    on the installer.

    Strictly speaking bootp/tftp could be an option for remote installation,
    but it would depend on the features of the installer, and it's probably
    not the only option if it is available.

    So: What's the distro and version?
    Someone familiar with it can give you a more specific answer.

    Older Suns (at least SparcStation 5, 10 and 20) use RARP instead
    of BOOTP for remote boot.
