[SUMMARY] Installation problem with Solaris 8

Wanted to know if some of the installation problems encountered when
using the "Install" CD from Solaris 8 2/00 had been corrected in
later releases.

Apparently the 6/00 edition of Solaris has most of these bugs fixed,
including a problem with sys-unconfig. I had experienced problems
formatting the boot disk.

Thanks to: Bill Fay and Tim Evans.
