[rescue] Getting image on drive

I've got some SCSI2SD and other similar SCSI replacements.   Without
working from a Sun 4 box, I'm trying to figure out if there is a way to
write an image for say Sun OS 3.5 (or 3.4.1)
onto an SD card that could be used to boot my Sun 3/110.

I've spent some time trying various remote boot options and haven't been
successful yet.  I'm trying to do this as a starting point
to do remote boots of the Sun 2/120 machine I'm restoring.    If anyone has
a process for doing it, would be very useful!
I'll be sure to get it documented and up on a web page and into

I've got a bootable disk for my Sun 1/110 but I'm not sure how full of an
image it has on it.  And that's also an SMD disk.   To make matters
crazier, I've got a SMD->SCSI adapter device
(from a nice list member!) so ultimately I'm going to try to get an image
of some original/very-early Sun OS versions I can install there.

I don't have a MultiBus SCSI card yet (it's been on my list behind the Sun
2 kbd :-) ) .
