Given a copy of OFW booted from floppy on a PC, is there a comparatively 
straightforward way of using it to boot an OS or loader from other block 
devices or over the LAN, in the way that I'm used to on Sun kit?

I'm hoping to eventually put it on some ARM-based development boards as 
an interactive layer before they boot Linux (etc.) from disc.
