    hi,

    i think you might consider posting on a Solaris forum as this one is for Linux.
    Linux and me it's a love story

    if you could, why not just put the dvd drive from the xp machine into the sparc?

    other than that you should be able to set up network boot, but you would probably need to configure the xp machine as the net boot server.

    good luck with google: solaris 10 net boot
