I tried to install GRUB using a ELF boot image:

Installing for sparc64-ieee1275 platform.
grub-install: error: the size of `/boot/grub/sparc64-ieee1275/boot.img' is not

-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 816 Jan  7 18:29 /boot/grub/sparc64-ieee1275/boot.img

I mistakenly went with the expert installer of the latest netinst image and saw this :

  ┌┤ [!!] Install the GRUB boot loader on a hard disk ├┐
  │          Unable to install GRUB in dummy           │
  │ Executing 'grub-install dummy' failed.             │
  │ This is a fatal error.                             │

So I will go with lilo or perhaps start over with the default installer
which doesn't really seem to allow manual ipv4 config but may be more
commonly tested.
