Thanks for all the responses. People suggested 4 different solutions
1. With Solaris 2.6 one can directly add a patch to the install image.
This is true but I was trying to install the Patch cluster which
is installed by the script "install_cluster" which inturn calls
"installpatch" which then calls "/usr/sbin/patchadd". So there was
no option to specify to apply against the image
2. Create a link from /newpath/patchadd /usr/sbin. Since the installpatch
calls the "patchadd" with its explicit full pathname I could'nt use this.
3. Simon-Bernard suggested that I create a script in /a/etc/rc3.d/S99patch
during jumpstart. When jumpstart reboots it will run this script which
will then install the patch cluster and removes itself from the start
up script. I used this solution to fix my problem.
4. Use chroot command. I did not give this a try.
Thanks for the following peoples suggestion
