When the SPARC sees a "break" on the line, it enters the PROM.  
The PC always (effectively) "sends" a break at boot time.  
Unless you can configure the Sparc to ignore serial breaks, you're out of luck.  

You're better off using a real terminal as the Sparc's console.  You could always connect the PC to the other serial port; in that case rebooting the PC will not make the SPARC enter the PROM monitor.

Tell me how to tell my Sparc to ignore serial breaks, and an A grade is yours.

ok> printenv
ALL tty options set to false

ttyb-input-device = ttyb
ttyb-input-device = ttyb

input-ouptut-devicees = ttyb

Just disconnect the machines before restarting your PC, then when your PC is running again and your terminal emulator is running, connect them again.
