} I'm trying to do a _network_ installation of StarOffice 5.2 in a
} Solaris Sparc 5.6 environment, using the downloaded executable
} "so-5_2-ga-bin-solsparc-en.bin" from . The
} installation is done by running so-5_2-ga-bin-solsparc-en.bin, and the
} resultant installation is a "Single User Installation", not a network
} installation -- there is _no_ opportunity during the install to make
} it a network installation.
} In StarOffice 5.1, the network installation is done by running
} "<>/setup /net" (or -net, depending on the doc),
} but with 5.2 you don't have the script "setup" until _after_ you
} run so-5_2-ga-bin-solsparc-en.bin, and by then it's too late:
} "setup /net" at that point will not do the network installation.
} I've checked the StarOffice and Sun managers FAQ -- no help there.
} Any help will be appreciated.
