Thanks again!
I got the loader working... Or at least, I got the tftp part and the bootp
thing working...
But now I have this problem:

(Copied and pasted the output of my terminal screen below)

Sun Serverblade1 (UltraSPARC-IIe 650MHz), No Keyboard

OpenBoot  4.7.5, 1024 MB memory installed, Serial #xx.

Loading /boot/defaults/loader.conf

The spinning '|\-/|' sign does spin, but it does it very (very) slowly.
Can anybody help? (Or at least point me in the right direction...)
I tried both the 5.2.1 and the 5.1 release.
