Sun X-Terminal boot from Linux...

This is really a two part question:

1) Where to get the info
2) Anyone getting it to work?


I have a Linux 7.x box.
I have a Sun Sparc X-Terminal 1

I do not have the CD containing the boot image for the X-Terminal 1.

I know that a long time ago, there was an xkernel package for the Sun 3 series. (I used to have/use it when I had a Sun 3/60 as a xterminal)

So, my questions are:

Does anyone know where to get the proper boot image for an X-Terminal 1 (Sun seems to have wanted to forget about the product completely)

And, does anyone know where I can find a set of instructions to make this work?  I'd really love to use the terminals if possible.
