Have you looked at the 2 article series, Bootable SolarisTM
Installation CD, by Rytis Sileika, in SysAdmin magazine? Although
the articles mostly address modifying the the build, they demonstrate
how to create the cd.
# /etc/init.d/volmgt start
# cd /cdrom/cdrom0/s0
# find . -print | cpio -pudm /var/bootcd/s0
# mkisofs -R -D -d -L -l -sparc-boot sol.8.s1,sol.8.s2,sol.8.s3,sol.8.s4,sol.8.s5 > -o solaris_8.iso ./s0
Below are the articles and the links.
