Slack on Sparc Box?

I was just wondering if anyone has installed Slack on any sun microsystems or not? I have a Tadpole sparcbook 3000xt laptop with Solaris 2.5.1 on it and I have no clue on what to do with it because I don't have the orginal cd with the packages on it to update it. i have asked for info in the Solaris forum and have gotten no response? I know Slack so i thought I would ask here if anyone has tried it or not?

There is also a site called UltraLinux that is providing info on Linux for Sparc and UltraSparc systems.
