I'm not into sun systems or solaris whatever it was, but I know we just could turn it on and only a waiting cursor appears on the screan, I thought it was waiting for a sun server to boot up from LAN and I was thinking, isn't there a way to fake a sun server with a linux pc to run the thin clients from that pc.
It looks like you are talking about SunRays.
There's no O/S on them, so they do not really boot from LAN, but definitively need a Sun server to be used.
There are plans to have the server software released for Linux: http://www.tectonic.co.za/view.php?id=333
