You don't need mksunbootcd(1) anymore. mkisofs(1) can create Sun
bootable CDs directely. See the -B / -sparc-boot option.

To netboot see:
In section "Setting up the filesystem, Diskless NetBSD HOW-TO"
you can replace "base.tgz" and "etc.tgz" with
".../sparc/installation/bootfs/instfs.tgz". That way the machine will
netboot into the instalation system to install the harddisk.
