         There are two solaris x86 mailing lists at yahoo.  One is 
moderated and the other is not moderated.  The moderated one is suppose to 
not "bash" the OS (any OS), but just be tech related.  To learn more about

         I downloaded the Solaris 9 x86 update drivers for the smart array 
5i.  This is an executable that will create a 1.44 floppy.  this worked 
great.  I did get this from Juergen Keil:
