I don't know anything about Sun machines, but most systems these days can boot over a network. On a PC it must be selected and configured in the BIOS and another system on the network must be configured to act as a server. Seems like Sun would have the same capability.

Or do you mean you just need to install an OS on the hard disk of the Sun? If that's the case you could temporarily install the disk in the other machine, or temporarily install the CD drive in the 1st machine.

I still am not clear on what you need to do. Do you want to boot the machine without the CD over a network, or install an OS on it so it can boot itself? There is plenty of information on either procedure available using google.
