Never installed Solaris before, but here is a shot in the dark (you may have already tried this)....
Try mounting the CD on your Linux box and searching for boot.img or *.img by using the following command:
find [mount-point] -name '*.img' -print
If you are lucky, Sun creates boot and rescue images just like Linux does. If not, I have no idea what to do. I'm assuming that you're lucky, so you position yourself in the directory you found boot.img and you type the following command:
dd if=boot.img of=/dev/fd0 bs=1440k
This should create your boot disk. Hmmm.....documentation, that is a different story completely. Maybe someone else knows where to find that....
