It's not difficult to roll your own bootable ISO of OpenBSD.  I had a
shellscript to do that, at one point, but somewhere along the line
cdrecord's Sun-boot options changed, and I never got around to updating
it because I buy the CDs, anyhow.

But, as Sridhar pointed out, NetBSD on Sparc is very nice, too.
