Someone will have to build an ISO as it was just committed yesterday, but with 
the driver you won't need to netboot at all.  Ken, do you feel like rolling a 
snapshot release for sparc64 and sticking it on ftp-master?  You might want 
to coordinate with scottl@ in case he thinks he can fix the tagging 
corruption problem in the next couple of days.
