hey all:
many thanx to Keith McMillan, Philip Edwards Diane Oman, Robin Landis and
especially Tim Evans who chimed in first w/ the correct answer. I had been
searching readme's and such for two days and never thought to check to
solaris faq. doh!.
 anyway the problem was my home directory (where the patches where untarred)
had incorrect permissions. the entire directory tree has to be rx-able by
nobody. (I didn't experiment but I would be that you could get away w/ some
of the higher directories being just x-able) I re ran the patch cluster and
it went in smoothly w/ just a few Error code 2. (patch already installed)
