: SunOS might run in TME (http://people.csail.mit.edu/fredette/tme/). I 
: don't think anything other than Linux runs in QEMU's Sun emulation (or 
: for that matter, any of the non-PC QEMU emulators).

OpenFirmware that QEMU implements is somewhat insufficient to boot
anything but the hacked up version of Linux.
