I'm about to begin the process of migration from 4.1.x to 2.5 and would
appreciate any suggestions for a book or books that would help this
process, preferably one that will show BSD commands/procedures and their
equivalent Solaris 2 counterparts.
Several people recommended the following reference books by Janice Winsor:
"Solaris System Administrator's Guide" (ISBN 1-56276-080-7)
"Solaris Advanced System Administrator's Guide" (ISBN 1-56276-131-5)
Also, several people pointed me to Sun's Solaris migration page:
I was told about the "Solaris 1.x to 2.x Transition Guide". Which can
be found in the "Sun Answerbook" and can be ordered separately from Sun
One interesting contribution was "firstname.lastname@example.org" for email
I was also told to run for a while on one system, avoid using the default
partition table and load the BSD compatibility package.
Thanks to the following for their recommendations:

Thanks to all that contributed information, forgive me if I left you off
the above list, I got a lot of good replies.
