IIRC, from installing 3.2 on a 2/120, there's a standalone
partitioner/formatter which you need to boot to prepare the disk, then you
boot the miniroot from tape. There was some kind of installer in the
miniroot but nothing very fancy. On the other hand, it was more
sophisticated than SunOS 2.something, which just had a little shell script
which untarred from the tape onto the disk.
