Default Sunfire v210 With open solaris

I have a sunfire v210 rack mount server that is giving me some trouble. I am not sure if the server is new because it was donated, but when I power on the server I get a white screen telling me that there is a bad magic number. in white bios screen on the sun server. I am using a normal Dell keyboard and mouse, which dont seem to be working. To counter act this, I connected a scisco cable to a linux machine that is also connected to one of the back ports on the server. I can now type simple commands on linux terminal which translate and can control the sun server. My goal is to get some kind of GUI/ or diagnos test or an OS up so I can start running some tests and learning how solaris is different from other OS. This is my first time with both Solaris, and and wityh a Sun Microsystems server. Is there a way to download or burn a copy of a live cd or an ISO of Open Solaris to a disc, so i can pop it into the sun optical drive and install something on the server?

boot the server and connect to the console of the server using hyperterminal/putty
from your laptop or any other available PC
put in the soalris cd and reboot the server to start installation
