Solaris does not support the Joliet filesystem, while linux does.
There is (at least) a freeware program, mkisofs, that can be used
to create a image of the CD on Solaris, then after ftping the image
to the PC you can use the software that runs on the PC to burn the CD

As a last question and more specific, after using mkisofs on Solaris I
use WinOnCD on the PC. Could anybody who has used mkisofs and WinOnCD let
me know if this worked for him/her?
