I believe their are now versions of NFS that allow diskless Sun's to boot
off of Vaxes and other machines. I could be wrong...it might still be
pending release. Naturally diskless Suns can boot off of low-end
workstations like the Sun 3/60 (it's slower).

When Sun's 386 machine (see InfoWorld and ComputerWorld) comes out the answer
is yes. Look at Sun's NSE package (it works with CADRE, Interleaf etc)
