First note that sparc64 is an unofficial port, so it has not the same level of
support than official ones.

My guess is that you should first try to install a sparc64 image such as the one
listed here:

Then upgrade it to unstable (possibly by editing /etc/apt/sources.list).

I have access to this machine (which is not an official Debian machine, but is
run by an individual Debian Developer):

You could try to contact the sysadmin (email on the above page) to get an
account (you can put me in CC and I will reply that I support your request).

Alternatively you can give me instructions and I try to debug it myself.
