There were two installation CDs for NEXTSTEP 3.3... one for NeXT and PC hardware, the other for Sun (SPARC) and HP (PA-RISC) hardware. If you have a NEXTSTEP CD (that is, just one CD), then you may not have the CD for Sun/HP hardware.

No floppies are needed for installation on Sun hardware, you just directed the system towards the CD once the system has booted to a command prompt.
