That only works because the OBP patches are standalone programs that
don't require an OS to run.  But, if you wanted, you could roll your own
custom Solaris 9 miniroot with the patch added, then you could boot -s
cdrom and run the patch, but, by that time, you've invested far more
time than it would take for a minimal Solaris 9 installation.
