Wait a sec.  I just got done taking an assembly language class in sparc
(yes they switched from x86 to sparc) and I was really surprised to not
find that many materials available for reference. had some
stuff and I found only a little bit on Sun's doc site.  There just
wasn't that much there for assembly programming.  I'm not saying that
Sun assembly is hard (I thought it wasn't so bad), but there could be a
few more references out there for us.
