Emulating Sparc Solaris on x86 - NEIN

Howdy. So I'm trying to install a Sparc version of Solaris on an x86 VM because:
- There's no spare Sparc machine around here powerful enough for what I need
- The one I can find is a POS and won't really do anything
- It'd be grand to be able to do it on my laptop

So installed qEmu which uses Bochs as an emulator. It doesn't boot Solaris - getting a system halted error. Apparently something to do with resource redirection.

One must now find a spare Sparc machine with enough power. NEIN!
