(i also post this question to gmane.comp.emulators.qemu)

i want to virtualize (under a linux x86 host) my noisy sparc workstation
with the help of qemu and want to know if its possible to
get an system image to run or what other options available
for sparc virtualization

im developing a low-traffic network communication software
and sparc is one of my test platforms

is the sparc emulation good enough for
(low-traffic) network communication tests?

my current system specs:
-SUN Ultra 10 SPARC Workstation
-384 MB RAM
-Operating System: Solaris 10 November 2006 - SunOS Release 5.10
Generic_118833-33 64-bit
-Desktop: CDE 1.6.3, X11 Version 6.6.2
-Compiler: SunStudio 12 - Sun C/C++ v5.9 2007/05/03 (and gcc v.3.4.6)
-Workstation-Info: SUNW,Ultra-5_10;sparc;sun4u

it would be nice to have the desktop running
but i can compile & test my software fully on command line

questions are:
-can i (just) boot an image of my machine into qemu?
-what bios do i need - OpenBios, OpenBoot, original (how can i get this
from my machine?)
-use qemu git head or other version?

thx for any help
