SUMMARY: (Late) Recovering Solaris/Intel with NetBackup 4.5

Well my approach was correct, but my SPARC experience got in the way

It turns out there is a huge difference between how Intel and SPARC boots.

In the SPARC world you have to install the boot block on the root slice of
the boot disk.

In the Intel World you have to install the boot block on slice 2 of the boot
disk.  Furthermore, the way I am trying to do it, I have two instanced of
Solaris installed on the same physical disk.  The idea is that if I need to
restore, I can just boot to the second instance which is installed on slice
7 and then newfs the other file systems, mount them, and initiate the
restore.  I don't actually need to install the boot block because there is
already a valid boot block on the disk.
