  It really has little or nothing to do with anything Sun-specific.
Give this a try:

  I assume you've got a working machine with a comm program on it, or
a real terminal.  Get a serial cable plus whatever gender-benders
you'll need to connect the two serially.  If there's a keyboard
plugged into the SPARCstation, unplug it.  Power it up.  If you
don't see the bootup messages, you'll need to insert a null modem
into the serial line.
