If you have the Multibus SCSI host adapter, it's possible to create a bootable
OS disk using a newer machine running SunOS 4. After copying and booting the
miniroot, the install just untars tape files, then runs makedev, creates an
fstab, and installs a boot block. I can walk you through it if it would be
helpful to you.

It's possible to use a modern disk too, though not necessarily completely
straightforward to get it set up so the Multibus SCSI host adapter is happy
with it. I captured some notes here:
