[rescue] SPARCclassic X - what software did this run?

It sounds like the SPARCclassic X machines were designed to netboot special X
terminal software instead of a full SunOS/Solaris - does anyone know how that
worked, how that was installed, and if some sort of distribution of that is
still out there somewhere?

I assume the machines netbooted via the usual RARP/bootparams/NFS scheme that
other SPARC machines do, but how did that differ from a normal diskless
workstation setup?

May be acquiring one and would like to attempt running what it was intended
