Can you install Solaris 9 into a Solaris 9 container?
I found a lot of documentation about installing a Solaris 9 flar into a
Solaris 9 container. Can you install Solaris 9 from media into a container?

I don't think so. AFAIR it works only with a flar or ufsdump.

I'm having trouble installing Solaris 9 on my PC. I'm using a Kingston

card works ok.

Hi there, I have an old Sun Box, is an Ultra SPARC-IIi 300MHz, right now I
am using Solaris 9. I have a two parts question, first one is, can I
install Solaris 10 on this machine?, maybe is just to outdated for it.
Second question is, can I download all the Solaris 9 software from
"www.sun.com" as DVD, into a Windows XP box, them burn them as a DVD, will
it work on my Sun Box?, or once I download them in to the Windows box, do

same question will it work on the Sun Box?

Solaris supports most of the standard font formats, including TrueType,
PostScript Type 1, PostScript Type 3, and BDF, so you don't need to
find a Solaris font for it - just a TrueType or PostScript font for it.

Yes. On two disks, easily. On one disk it's more involved, but IIRC is

the old "telnet to port 1720" it does connect...I just wanted to

there are two patch clusters for Solaris 9 (SPARC)
1) Solaris 9 Sun Alert Patch Cluster (127.6M)

Reading the README's for these I can't work out what is the difference
between them. I've not checked each patch individually to see what is
the latest, but why are there two copies?
I must be missing something here.

what are the not so obvious packages?

Ive read over some of the errata type and release notes
information for Solaris 9.
Just a couple of quick questions for those of you that

Also, if I have applications that utilize the libs in
/usr/openwin are they still available? Basically I read
that /usr/openwin is gone on 9 .. if thats true are they
including it on the bonus sw disks?
