Dear managers,

I got a few responses from guys that told me they had the same problem 
and finally burned the DVD on a Windows machine. Urgh! :-( This is not 
necessary. I just reread the Solaris download page and got a reference 
to a preinstalled tool cdrw.

	cdrw -i /burn/file.iso

did the trick for me. Solaris 10 really rocks!!!

Thanks a lot!
