Can anyone tell me where I could get hold of the

A stage one install with the bare minimums will take you approximately
a week on a ss4. I don't know if there is a stage 3 build available.
Consider disk and memory as well, mine has 1G of disk and 32M ram, so
the task of keeping it updated would pretty much be a full-time job.

I'd suggest debian, which in my experience has excellent support for
sparc in particular.

Thanks Johan,

there's a massive ;) 160MB of RAM is it and I've got a 9GB disk for it
somewhere. I'll give the debian distribution a go.
