Sun MicroSystems newbie questions

hi guys,

i got my hands on a Sun MicroSystems SunFire V240 Dual ULTRA SPARC-IIIi 2 RU Server.
i have a few questions regarding this server.

this server did not come with hard drives.
what hard drives can i use in this machine?

there is no video card in the machine, how do i install Solaris?
do i install it using the Solaris Management Console? how, i have plugged the server into network with a dhcp server and it did not request an ip address. is there a default ip address? how do i log into the Solaris Management Console?
