The answer is yes, you can install solaris 2.x on a sparc classic with
16mb ram but don't expect too much on the performance.
Here is what I am suggested:

16-24MB/32MB swap: for tty only
32-48MB/32MB swap or more: for X, CDE.

Thanks to the following ppl who replied.

I don't know if it's what you want, but it's what you get.  :-)
