Absolutely - you should be able to netboot the 2/50, the 3/60 and even
the Voyager.
In fact if you have a spare drive for the Voyager you could even put
NetBSD on that for a boot server.

If you have issues netbooting SunOS on the 3/60 or 2/50 one
alternative might be to netboot NetBSD and use it to partition the
disks and install that way.
