Well... I'm going out on a limb here... but if you can get all the
necessary programs under win32, Solaris isn't going to care where it
netboots from....

You would need a rarpd somewhere, tftp server, nfs server, and
bootparamd server.

I'm sure rarpd is easy if NT doesn't have this ability as a service
already (I'm not an NT expert), nfs is available, tftp server is definately
available... that leaves bootparamd ... I wouldn't be surprised if someone
has one....  

You won't have the benefit of the setup scripts that configure all these
pieces for you, but you could do it....  after all Solaris just sees it
all as a network.... wether a Cray supercomputer, Sun, or Timex Sinclair
would be serving up the stuff, the Sun box won't care.
