Didn't receive too much to help here.

Ryan suggested this site:

and commented about UDF vs. ISO format.

Someone else pointed out a Blueprint doc, but didn't mention it.

I'm going to look a little deeper and toss together a web page once I 
have what I want working.

All the best,

Hi All;

I wasn't actually quite sure what to call the subject, and I don't think
this has been broached before, but here goes.

I need to have a 'reference' system that will contain a production build
of both Solaris and our software release. This system will be used to
clone every system we ship.

What I'd like to be able to do is ship a 'rescue' DVD with these
systems. To do that I'd like to be able to burn a DVD like so:

boot partition + mini root == jumpstart + flash archive

Has anyone had experience with Solaris 10, and the type of custom
environment I describe above? Note that we'll be including other
software such as 64bit x86 MySQL, etc.  The target 'reference' platform
is a V20z with a 3511. If anyone is burning DVD's on Solaris in this
manner I'd love to hear about it and your recommendations.

Will summarize.
