Yes, there is the add_install_client command which you can issue from the command line. I believe that also those programs which you want to avoid because of openwindows (Adminsuite or Admintool e.g.) just collect the information you enter and then use add_install_client to do the job.

By the way, add_install_client is on the Solaris CD ROM in/cdrom/cdrom0/s0.

You may also use setup_install_server which supplies the boot software for the server.

I think that the man pages are quite clear about  the usage of those commands.

Good luck,
